It's OFFICIAL(finally, whew!).
I go into the hospital December 7th and receive the transplanted stem cells on December 13th. We have decided that I am going to undergo a "mini" or nonmyeloablative transplant. This kind of transplant involves less invasive and less system suppressing treatment in preparation for the actual procedure, so I will, hopefully, have an easier time AFTERWARDS. I am receiving very careful and caring treatment, at every hospital and clinic and office. I am grateful, and I know that I am very blessed. B"H.
