Well, all systems are go for my bone marrow transplant! I move to Baltimore on Thursday, get a catheter in my chest on Friday, and start the pre-transplant chemo regimen on Saturday. Total body irradiation is Thursday 4/11, and the big T is Friday 4/12. The whole thing is outpatient (barring any infections or other miscellaneous problems), but you need to be within an hour’s drive of Hopkins, so my home in DC will not do the trick.
Lots of people are on board praying for me, and I suspect this is why I’m not feeling panicked. I am a bit on the antsy side, though.
