The Ugly Truth

Hello to all who read this…it’s Aunt Jane and I have been given the honor of blogging for Ceci when she is not feeling up to doing so. I will throw in a disclaimer right now that I do not have the wit nor the charm that our Ceci has! But please bear with me as we want to share with you how she is doing and what she is up to.

The news from the “Pink Palace” is that today is day negative four…a big shout out that she only has one more day of chemo! As for her day today, not so good :( The chemo has revealed its ugly side and made her sick for most of the day. The expectations are that she still has to eat and drink to maintain proper weight and excretion levels. That is rather hard for a girl when the output is faster than input! Ryan started on his portion of the transplant today by receiving a shot that will allow him to produce mass quantities of white blood cells which make the stem cells. He has to receive these shots between 8-8:30 a.m. for the next three days. Rumor has it that he will not feel very well. Good thing those finals are finished!

Thank you, thank you to all who have gone and donated blood and platelets! The blood banks are very low! We appreciate all of your thoughts, prayers and support.

Six weeks ago in clinic Ceci had her pictures taken by an organization called Flashes of Hope. Here is one of the final products.
