Last Friday I started getting shots called Filgrastim to make my bone marrow produce tons and tons of stem cells. I had them Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday morning. On Monday I started another shot, called Mozobil, which actually forces all the stem cells that my bone marrow produced out into my bloodstream so that they can be collected. The thing you should know about Mozobil is that they INJECT IT INTO YOUR TUMMY!!!! But that turned out to be not a big deal. I might ask to get all my shots that way from now on. I know. I'm shocked by this turn of events. Before this if you'd told me I was getting an injection in my stomach I would have told you that if you tried it you'd be getting an injection in your eye. I'm really not kidding though, shots in the stomach don't hurt as much as shots in the arm or your rear end. Promise.

For the next 6 days, aside from some meetings at the hospital where nobody pokes me, I'll be resting and spending time with my family. Please pray for Michael and the kids, this is so hard on them.
