You will note that our daily count has changed. From now on, all our day counts will be measured against the day of my transplant which is scheduled for Tuesday, also known as Day Zero.
Today is the last day of my Fludderbean chemo treatment. But they are adding a powerful new drug called Melaphalan, which will dry out all my mucous membranes. As a precaution against the canker sores that would form in my mouth, I must keep my mouth cold by eating vast amounts of Popsicles and ice cream.
For the next six hours, my mouth will be full of ice cream, hampering my ability to finish dictating this post.
