And here are the stem cells hanging in the bag to the right.
After this he had to have more platelets transfused. I was kind of surprised that he still needed another transfusion today. Hopefully, that will be it for a while.
Tomorrow morning he has to call at 8:00 to see if they got enough stem cells today for the transplant. They probably didn't since we were told it normally takes anywhere from 3 to 5 days, but they said to call before he comes down. Then we'll know whether or not he still needs the Neuprogen shots. He'll continue to have them until they have enough stem cells. He'll be glad when he doesn't need them any longer because they cause bone pain and he's been having terrible headaches from them. Even if they have enough stem cells he still has to be down there for a bood draw, so we'll be making the trip again tomorrow.
Today the sun came out so I went outside for a few minutes while Reid was hooked up to the machine. The press is being shown some Texas hospitality. They now have all the conveniences of home.
