We had a good day yesterday.  All signs point to Casey being healthy enough for the transplant.  The labs will be done more in depth, but from initial readings it all looks good.  They will have the cord blood shipped.  It is coming from Germany.  When it gets here they will set the schedule.  Casey will probably crave brauts and wiener schnitzel after the transplant, which is ok...If he starts wearing leaderhosen I will get a bit concerned!  Today they will remove his central line and they will replace it with a different one for the transplant after he is admitted to the hospital.  He is anxious to not have tubes hanging out of his chest for a week.   So once again we are waiting for a phone call saying it is time to come in.  We are thinking late next week.  The first week will be intense chemo, followed by the transplant and 3 weeks of hospital recovery and then daily visits to the hospital.
