I hate birthdays! I just celebrated one so why would I want to celebrate another one? I do understand the significance of this birthday but I really don't care. I just want to put all this in the past and pretend it had been a bad dream but I know reality will never allow me to ever escape this once diagnosed.
The nurses came in the room today and drew pictures of balloons, something that I guess looks like a stem cell?? and wrote Happy Birthday...stem cells do what your supposed to do! It was nice but I was not in to it.
The cells came to the room (like a bag of blood) and was pretty uneventful. The initial taste was like spaghetti O's. The smell was more like rotten eggs to me. It didn't last long so it wasn't that bad. I started to get chilled so I covered up and fell asleep. Woke up feeling pretty good. My throat is not as sore but it still hurts a bit. Overall, I feel pretty good.
I will try to update tomorrow. Nites! Alan
