    Milestones: June 27th will be 1 year since my Stem Cell Transplant. Went back to work in October never felt this good in years. It was a tough recovery but so we’ll worth it. No more aches and pains.

    Celebration: 32 days ago I had my Stem Cell Transplant and I'm finally being discharged from the hospital today. TheStem Cell Transplant was successful. Typically this is an out patient routine but due to several unforeseen obsticles, such as peunomia, AtrFib, and Congestive Heart Failure. It was a rough journey despite all the obsticles I feel great. I thank my faith in and trust in God, family and friends who helped make this transplant a successful!

    Hi, tomorrow I will get my long awaited Stem Cell Transplant. It has been a great journey so far and looking forward to a great recovery. I will be going to the clinic 6-8 hours to receive fluids and blood products for about 3 weeks. Then when I no longer need blood products I will get less frequent check ups. Eventually, I will be able to lead a normal life. Please keep me in your prayers,
