I was able to get an overnight pass yesterday, which was nice. Went out for dinner and saw a movie in one of those VIP theatres. I find it easier to sleep all the way through the night when you don’t have any IV alarms going off or nurses waking you up to do vitals.
White blood cell count is going up slowly, it’s at 2.4 today. Tomorrow I’ll ask my doctor what the plan is from here.
Some have asked how they can register to become stem cell donors. This website contains more information on that https://www.blood.ca/en/stem-cell/onematch-information-new-registrants. There are certain criteria though, including that donors must be between 17 and 35 years old. I appreciate those who choose to register to become donors, as there are a lot of other folks looking for a bone marrow match also. Since only 30% of people will have a full match sibling, stem cell donors play a crucial role in helping blood cancer patients. Hopefully one of them can help with my situation.
