Transplant Day -3

Today started out great for Doc. He slept pretty well last night and was feeling fine most of the day. He was able to eat breakfast and lunch. He spent a lot of time working on his strat-o-matic baseball game. He also got in a really good walk this afternoon. He couldn't walk this morning, because they had him hooked up to the monitors while they gave him some of his medicine. Today it only took four hours, but it does restrain his walking. This evening Doc started feeling like he was getting a chill. The tech came in and took his temperature, but he wasn't running a fever. That was great, but soon after he started feeling bad. We called the nurse to get something for nausea, but unfortunately she was too late. She did give him something after he was sick and that has put him to sleep. We can be thankful for the fact that he isn't running a temperature. I am praying that he has a better day tomorrow. Doc has just one more day of medicine and two more nights of chemo then on Tuesday he will get a break. Each day brings us closer to the transplant and him getting well enough to go home again.

We were thinking about everyone at church today. We hope everything is going well. We are praying that it will be God's will for us to be back there soon.

Everyone on the floor we are on in the cancer center is having/or has had a stem cell transplant. There are 16 rooms on this floor that are all private and always full. So they do a lot of transplants here. It has been interesting to talk to some of the other patients and their spouses. We have found out some of what they have gone through and how God is working in their lives.

We ask that you continue to keep Doc in your prayers. Hopefully he will be well enough to write the blog himself tomorrow.
