Day +11.  Not much has changed since yesterday.  Casey's counts are as low as they can get.  He got 2 bags of red blood today and his throat is still sore.  They told us the cord transplants take longer to engraft than the traditional transplants.  Last night while Casey was doing his laps, we met up with another patient who was asking him about his disease.  Casey told her his story about how he had to go through 2 years of chemo 3 years ago and now his disease came back and now he had a transplant.  She looked at her chemo and at Casey and said "I can't believe you had to go through this for that many years."  It kind of put it into perspective to me.  Because Casey does not complain much, he just focuses on the end results, I sometimes don't give him as much credit as I should.  This is a tough road he is traveling for the second time around, with a few more twists and turns along the way.  But he is handling it like a NASCAR driver, looking for the checkered flag.
