Sometimes, you just don’t know what might happen.
Today I was scheduled to get my ‘line’ in the neck so make the collection process easier. It was rather uneventful but I do not like it one bit, as evidenced in the featured image.
Robin & I had no longer gotten back to the room when I received a phone call. Apparently my lab results were so good that they wanted to start the collection process right away. Everybody there seemed pretty excited about it, so we returned to the VA and they plugged me in.
Several hours later we’d collected approximately 9 million stem cells, about 2.5 million over the goal. Praise God – I don’t think I’ll have to do that again. Maybe they can take out the neck line now. 🙂
