Day -10

For real this time.

Kate has officially started the transplant process!  No fevers to stop us this go around!

We were admitted around noon today.  We're in a different room this time and we are all the way in the back of the unit.  I'm hoping some of our favorite nurses float this way later this week! 

It's been a long day and Kate didn't go to bed until almost 10:30 tonight.  Thankfully she is sleeping peacefully right now - and is taking up the entire bed!  Looks like I might sleep sitting up.  Oh well, the things you do to keep the princess happy!

Chemo is set to start at 8am tomorrow.  Kate will receive a dose of busulfan every 6 hours (start to start) for 4 days.  After that, we switch over to cytoxan for 4 more days.

Please keep us in your prayers as Kate's little body is flooded with these nasty meds.  I know they play a very important role in the BMT process but, it still makes me sad to think about how bad they will make my sweet girl feel.

I have pictures from today on my camera but don't have the energy to upload them tonight.  Hopefully I'll be able to add them tomorrow!
