Today is Day -4. We are getting closer to the transplant date of Monday, February 8th. Casey's doctor was telling him that after the transplant he will exhale a garlic odor, which will encompass the whole room. We will probably have all the hospital staff stopping in looking for pizza! It has something to do with the preservative that is put into the stem cells. Kyle said that is the real reason we are all going to have to wear masks.
Casey's appetite has diminished, but in the previous weeks he ate really well, so he has enough of weight to carry him through. He really enjoyed being a regular person for the last couple of weeks, but know it is time to get back to being a cancer patient and getting this disease out of his body.
