D0 Transplant day

Got my cord blood transplant today between 9:30 - 10:30am. All went well, not much of an reaction except for a bit of fever. Though I do smell now due to the preservatives used.

There is an occupational therapist here called Lucy who specialises in making young people's stay in adult hospital easier - they have recently opened up a room with internet access and board game etc to keep us youngling entertained. Hospitals get boring!

So now its the waiting game, waiting for my white cell count to drop to 0, then waiting for it to come back up which is an indication the engraftment is working. If all goes supersmoothly well, I will be out of here in 14 days - just in time for ruxcon06 :-)

Anyways, still ok for now, hopefully I remain ok :-)

Cheers,
Steve
