going to keep it short I appreciate all the messages above VERY VERY much and all the thoughts and prayers along with it... I read the messages to my Dad and family and it gives us comfort knowing you are all there with us... Dad had a very tough time today stem cell infusion.. he had 8 syringes, first 5 was no problem, 6th started to get chest discomfort, throat discomfort heaviness... cramping diarhea with 6th they had to give him in the bathroom, blood pressure went way up over 200s shaking so bad they couldn't measure blood pressure even manually... they administered some medicine through iv to stop shaking along with other medications, then started throwing up, coughing... it was terrible I couldn't watch him the whole time had to leave the room didn't want to have my anxiety effect others... mom left at one point too and couldn't go back in... it was so scary... they held on the 8th shringe for about 5 1/2 hrs later... it was the dsmo chemical the stem cells were stored with... he had too many bags so too much of dsmo... he did well with the last syringe... no reaction... what's important is for others anyone going through it is to tell the SMALLEST bid of reaction they feel so they can give breaks in between bags... I'm glad it's over... he has no apetite at the moment... again thank you very much for all the notes and everything... not sure of how to start a new thread can't think at the moment... unless someone else wants to start it for me...
