Quick Check-In

Day 3 post transplant.  I am feeling OK.  Just really tired as a result of the radiation I had last week.  I am starting to get some mouth sores which has limited my food choices.  I am down to apple sauce, pudding, ice cream and strawberry pop tarts. 

My room has no shower in it so I have to have a sponge bath everyday.  Typically, I have this Jamaican nurse that takes care of me most days.  She is pretty cool.  Her name is Miss Donna.  She is always asking me "How ya doin boyfriend?" She is really nice with a thick Jamaican accenct. 

Donna always gets my sponge bath ready for me and washes my back for me.  This weekend when Crystal was in, Donna came in early and said "Get up, we need to get you cleaned up before your lover come in darlin!"  Crystal was still at the hotel.  She is pretty funny..

Trevor came in for a visit today before their trip to Vegas.  It was good to see him.  Also, before I came in for transplant, we had some family pics taken.  Here are some of the proofs.  Thanks Kelly!

Hang in there Chad! Miss Donna sounds like a sweet lady. Glad she's taking good care of you. I love the family pictures. They came out so good and the ones of Nolan and Paige show they're personalities so well. Tam

Your family photos are beautiful! Some of Miss Donna's comments made me chuckle. Hope your mouth sores heal soon (although I like the chocolate pudding part, mmm.)
