Day +18 (post- transplant)

Chris' fatigue shows no sign of letting up. He slept for 11 hours last night. He had a one hour nap after being awake for half hour. When we got home from the hospital he had a nap until dinner. He then had a nap after dinner, woke up and watched an hour of TV  and has now gone to bed again. He has asked me to wake him to ring in the New Year, but I am not sure if he will be able to make it.

But even though our NYE was not what we had planned, we keep assuring ourselves that this procedure means that this next year will continue to get better and better. It is pretty obvious what our joint New Year's Resolution is this year. We want to take advantage of this second chance. Chris gets a second immune system. We now get a chance to do all of the things that we might not have had the opportunity to do. 2011 is going to be a pretty exciting year.

His counts were down a bit today:

WBC: 2.3

Platelets: 16

Hemoglobin: 107

Neutrophils (from yesterday): 1.19

Tonight's blog will be short since I don't have Chris here to help me. But tomorrow since we have our first rest day in weeks we thought we would do our own year in review. We will give you our take on this procedure now that we have a little bit of distance from the whole thing.
