Hodgkins Horsburgh is back

Hello everyone. I am back. I hope everyone is doing the best they can with their given circumstances. I have went through a auto bone marrow transplant. I was in the Hospital for 30 days. I was released the 26th of November. Boy what a process for me. Very hard to do that procedure but it is do able. My body has been through a lot. I have a caregiver for 4 weeks then its back to my wife and baby girl. I love you all and send you my prayers. If you have any questions you want to ask me feel free.

    Hello Rory,
    My husband has

    Hello Rory,

    My husband has stage 3B Lymphoma which has been very agressive and chemo resistant, because of this and the fact that they found "free floating" cancer cells in his fluids, the doctors want to do a bone marrow transplant.   It is set up for Feb. 7th.   He doesn't want to go into the hospital and so he is doing this as an outpatient with me as the primary caregiver.   I understand his decision, but I am starting to panic a little, because I don't know what to expect i.e. how sick is he going to be, will it be worse that the chemo he has already done? Do you mind sharing a little about the actual procedure and how you felt?

    Thank you,
