So far its going good. They had scheduled 4 days to get stem cells but things went well and got it done in 1. Doctor says he is healthy so lets push forward with treatment.

Sorry to hear about that Jon, bad situation. 

Be prepared for some smell and taste changes. When my cousin went through chemo my aunt made broccoli cheese soup, her favorite. She swears it smelled like she remembered the bunny barn when she was in 4-H and said it tasted worse!

They did the chemo injection and then a few days later they did the stem cell injection. So he's on his way to the chemo flu stage. Then by the end of this week should be starting to recover.

Went down to visit on sept 21 and he was looking good. Tired weak and having all the side effects that they told him he would have. Had a fever for a couple days.  Blood numbers are coming up. Side effects are going away quickly. Might be chance he gets to come home this week?!
