4 Days Until Transplant

On four days left.  I am ready believe me.  The past two days of high dosage chemo have kicked my ass.  They have done in 2 days what it took a week of chemo in the past to do.  Think of every chemo side effect that you have heard of.  I have had them all in the past 2 days...

I started full body radiation today.  I have it twice a day and it lasts 20 minutes.

I am ready for transplant to be over and to move forward.  We are ready to throw it into neutral after that because it is all downhill to Groveville!

You're so close now! Everything is going to go GREAT! Just think, someday an Ironman is going to be a piece of cake after this! Yep...it's all downhill to Groveville now! xo

I think the "it's all downhill to Groveville" statement is a classic and should be on the townline sign for Buxton.

Stay strong Chad - you have an army of people that love you pushing you up that hill.

Keeping you close to our hearts -

I hope you are feeling better every minute! Hate the thought of you being so sick!!
This is going to go by fast...it has to!
I'm hoping these next few days are much less eventful and more restful leading up to the big day on Friday. HUGS!
