Day 5 Post Bone Marrow Transplant

So today is day 5.  Not a lot to report.  I have been extremely tired.  Still only able to eat soft foods because my throat is extremely sore.  Doctors are saying it will get worse before it gets better.  I am choosing not to believe them and feel I am on the mend.  At night they give me Adavan and Oxy to help with the pain.  It works really well!

So overall, doing OK, walking about 30 minutes a day, eating pop tarts and pudding and getting sponge baths...  Livin the dream baby!!!
