It's Here
The big day. The day we have been waiting for, but equally dreading - for a long long time.
Scott goes into hospital tomorrow. This is for his Stem Cell Transplant. He will go in tomorrow to be settled in ready for his Hickman Line being put in on Thursday. He will then have chemotherapy every day starting Friday until he no longer has an immune system. I will not go into too many details, but it is quite a dangerous process. He will then receive blood transfusions, platelet transfusions, an then his stem cells will be warmed up (they are frozen), and re-introduced into his body. We then sit back an wait to see if his immune system kicks back in ok. I will update as and when.
If there is anyone out there that reads my blog (I know Im crap at updating, just too much going on) please say a prayer for him.

Happy New Year
To everyone. It is a big year for us. Scott is going in for his Stem Cell Transplant (hopefully, beds willing), on the 17th January. It starts with a Hickman Line being inserted. He will then receive chemotherapy every day until his bloods show he has no immune system. His stem cell (which were harvested in November) are then transplanted back into his body, hopefully kickstarting his Immune system. I will let you know how things go.
