My 11th treatment this week – a final bag of Melphalan with an electrolyte chaser. Tomorrow is a rest day, then I get my stem cells back on Monday. After that it will be a daily rebuilding process while avoiding infections and opportunistic germs.
The chemo effects will reach their nadir in 10-14 days. That’s also about how long it will take for my stem cells to engraft in my bone marrow and start making new blood products. I’ll have to be very careful over the next few weeks but at least I’ll be in the home stretch.
Thanks to everyone who has prayed and written over the past months. I’m sure it has made this whole ordeal much more bearable.
