Stem Cell Transplant – Day 32

Kip learns how to use a nebuliser.

Some real progress today as Kip gets settled with more effective pain management. Plus, Sarah took in mini packets of Haribo, so he’s made up.

We are hoping more than expecting to have some neutrophils appear in his blood count tomorrow or Saturday, we really need some good news. They might be there already, but not in sufficient number to show up in the automated blood counts.

Today we’re saying a big thank-you to Billie’s Fund who, after following this blog offered to send something to Millie and Kip. We were thrilled when some big boxes of Lego arrived for them both!

There is a real sense of community and camaraderie amongst families affected by cancer. That sense of a shared experience is a tremendous support in tough times; there’s always someone who’s been through it to offer some hope and understanding.
