Post Stem Cell Transplant: Day +20

Last night Tami spent her first night back in a regular bed in a regular room. I'm told she slept well without all of the hospital noise and especially with no nurses coming in to check on her and poke for her samples during the night. 

I know some of you would really love to come visit Tami as soon as possible but at this time she is simply too tired for visitors. The Prednisone being used to treat her Graft vs. Host Disease may be the biggest culprit in making her feel so tired. I promise to keep you apprised as soon as this changes as I'm also certain that being able to see her friends and family members would do her a world of good.

Personally I want to wait to go see her until her white blood counts have improved even more. Tami is still susceptible to random infections so the fewer people she is exposed to right now the less chance of her picking up a bacterial, viral or fungal infection.

You are as always, welcome and encouraged to send Tami messages via her website for now. When she is up to it she goes through and reads them in batches. CLICK HERE if you would like to send Tami a message.

Thanks so much for checking in! It feels so great to have good news to report.

Visitor Status: Tami is not up for visits at this time
