My poor angel didn't sleep well at all last night. At this point we think most of his stomach pain is because he is constipated. He hasn't had a BM for 5 days now. He was given a stool softener twice yesterday so we hope it kicks in soon. The pain is so bad that he has to be given morphine. His mouth pain is not nearly as bad as previous hard chemos. If he has a BM today I think he will feel much better.
His stem cell rescue is scheduled for 10 a.m. this morning. He has a team of 5 nurses who will be working with him. You all are in for a special treat. I'm going to take a video or two of the stem cell process and I will post it tomorrow when I am at home. It will give you all a much better idea of what stem cells are and how they are administered. I will post more later to let you know how things went.
It is 10:50 and they just finished administering his stem cells. So far everything is going well. He is going back to sleep. He was cursing like a sailor for awhile but then settled right down. I'm very proud of him....
