Day 6 – Escape from the Conning Tower
Day 6 in transplant talk is “Rest Day”.. the day prior to having my stem cells put back into my body. To me, this day meant one more day to get out of the submarine conning tower and into a room with a view. By 630PM, a half hour before the aides shift change, I was told that Room 812 was available and had a bright cityscape view. BINGO. Within minutes I had everything in my room packed and ready to go. After a minor scuffle with the aid, my stuff was moved and I am now looking out the window watching the traffic below and the lights ahead. It’s GREAT. I said my Novena to St Ann, early. Had a quick bite to eat and getting ready for Monday Night Football in a few minutes.
Tomorrow is the big day…. 11AM is the plan. By noon I should have 5million new stem cells swimming around my system looking for a place to grow.
Talk to you soon
