2nd ASCT - Day 11 - No Question About It - I Have Engrafted! May 29 2012

Today is Day 11 after transplant and Day 19 of this hospitalization. 

I continue to have a terrible headache and do not feel like blogging. However, I wanted to get the word out that I have engrafted after my 2nd Autologous Stem Cell Transplant (ASCT).
On May 28 2012
4 AM WBC 0.7; ANC 0.5
4 PM WBC 1.4; ANC 1.2
On May 29 2012
4 AM WBC 3.6; ANC 3.3
4 PM WBC 4.7; ANC 4.3 (because my counts are so high, I did not receive neupogen today - hopefully, that will help with my headache. Yet, I still have a headache.

I just need one more blood draw on May 30 2012 with a high WBC and ANC and it will be official that I have Engrafted.

Lindsey McMenimen, RN came to do the discharge teaching with Jani and I. I will be discharged about 2 PM tomorrow, May 30 2012 to the hotel near the hospital. Will be nearly 80 degrees outside and Jani brought my shorts for me wear! ~

Tomorrow, Katie, the nutritionist will come to teach us the diet restrictions post ASCT. 
 Jani designed and ordered a new Mackay, Idaho TShirt for me. I love it!
