(Day 0) Transplant Day!!!!

Today I am feeling better, I haven’t felt or been sick at all. I have had 2 bags of my sister’s bone marrow, it’s like having a blood transfusion but smaller bags. Here’s a picture of me with one…

I did some magic tricks for the nurse…

I’ve had a feed going through my NG tube, I’m getting a little more used to it now. I’ve slept a lot today.

  6. Hello sweetheart. so pleased you sent this as I don’t know how to get to blog!!!!I shall have to get you to show me how to do all these new things.
    Being a magician for the nurses eh? I bet they love that. You’re learning lots of new things while sitting in bed aren’t you?
    I must say I think you are so very brave and Liv too! what special sisters you are. Not many sisters share bone marrow. I had a tube down my nose and throat last year, funny sensation isn’t it?
    Did Liv stay in hospital or long with you?
    Nanny is enjoying having Barney, she said he is being ever so good. I expect he gets excited when he sees you as he likes to be with you doesn’t he. y neighbour went to Birmingham hospital today, they said it is so busy its like a busy town! Look forward to seeing you soon. Get well soon sweetheart. Robin Carol and Debbiexxxxx
