Transplant Day +7

Hey everyone, it’s transplant day +7!

I can’t believe its been one week since Brandon’s transplant and his re-birthday! It’s also been 2 weeks since his admission. Coming into this transplant we knew it was going to be difficult, but I am so thankful for how well he is progressing given everything that he has been through.

Today Brandon had his first injection of granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF). These injections will stimulate the stem cells to begin engrafting in Brandon’s bone marrow. In the days to come we should start seeing his blood cell counts start to rise. I am SO excited to see what those amazing stem cells are going to do! Brandon’s white blood cell count has essentially been zero since before his transplant, so it will be exciting to see some healthy cell growth!

Brandon continues to improve day by day. We managed to get in almost a mile of walks around the ward and he was also up and out of bed for most of the day. He should really start to feel better as his blood counts start to rise over the next week.

Thank you all for your love and support! I can’t wait to share more good news tomorrow!
