I Have My Cells Back

My harvested stem cells have been returned to me as of yesterday. Now I must endure two weeks of sitting in a clinic at Hackensack University Medical Center for about 8 hours a day, as I am being "watched" by nurses. They take vital signs and feed us. The goal is of course to come home, which cannot come soon enough. In the meatime, I appreciate all the prayers, the blood and platelet donations, and good thoughts. The great enemy for me is a wearisome tedium. Sitting in a chair for 8 hours is maddening. Activity swirls around you, and just when sleep arrives, so does the nurse. So I will try and read, pray, do what I can, and dream of home. My evening accommodations are at least comfortable - the Hilton. At least it's not winter...
