And so it begins…

It seems like this has been a long time coming.  Tomorrow I enter the hospital to, basically, get a new immune system.  The plan is that it is an immune system that operates normally instead of attacking me.

This first stage is to pull a few million stem cells from my bone marrow.  The old way was to aspirate them with a long needle.  The new way is to utilize chemotherapy and other drugs to encourage the stem cells to enter the blood stream and then harvest them in a process that will take a couple of weeks.  Certainly a new adventure for me.
