Hodgkins first day of stem cell harvest.

Yeap today was the first day of my stem cell harvesting. It went pretty well. They hooked me up to a machine for about 4 hours to try and extract my good stem cells from my blood. They will call me later to give me my counts. Then they will let me know if I need to return to have it done again. I hear most likely I will have to return. But hopefully not. Anyway God bless you all and good wishes to everyone on earth.

    Good luck with the count. I was able to get all mine the first day and I hope you do too!
    Best wishes to you.
