Home Sweet Home

I can't believe I'm at home! It was 2 weeks ago today that I was recieving my donors cells and look at me now. I am sleeping in my own bed, able to make my own food and sit comfortably in my recliner. By looking at me a week ago you wouldn't think this was possible. I was at my lowest and not sure when I would get to feeling better, but Neupogen is a miracle drug. Since I have been home I feel so much better. I get to see the sun shining in the windows and I know I am more active because I have to move around to get what I need. Being home is the best thing for me. I go back tomorrow for a clinic visit to check my blood counts and make sure everything looks fine. Then I will probably be back in Dallas at least 3 times a week for check-ups. They want to keep a close eye on me so if I develop more GVHD they can treat it quickly. Just wanted to let everyone know that I'm doing great!
