Post Stem Cell Transplant: Day +1

I will continue to update this post throughout the day as I receive news as to how Tami is feeling. I'll also add a wrap up at the end of each day after I check in with Seattle each evening.

Update at 12:05 pm: Tami is doing ok, she is feeling the side effects from the chemo and is not feeling very well. She is very tired and trying to get some much needed rest.

On the up side she was able to eat some breakfast and is resting now.

Update 10:13 pm: Good news. Tami's blood counts have gone to 0 which means the chemo did it's job. And more good news, the Doctor said that she got a very good dose of stem cells. I'm not quite sure how they qualify what makes a "good" dose but I'll try to find out for you tomorrow.

It was a pretty quiet day and Tami felt exhausted and nauseous at times. Hopefully she will feel better tomorrow.

Thank you so much for all of the messages you all have been sending to her via her website. She isn't up to reading them every day but rest assured that when she's up to it she is able to go online to read them.
