Brandon is doing great!
He is sick, nauseous at times, has some pain, his throat is burning off...but he is doing great!
First off - all these symptoms were expected. And although they suck (and Brandon would stress that they REALLY do), I prefer these to an unexpected reaction to the transplant.
Second - Brandon has remained positive and he is fighting with all he has...Although EXTREMELY weak, he got on the exercise bike yesterday for 10 minutes; although his throat is in horrible pain and he has no taste buds, he forced himself to eat some food. And although he is tired, he lets me visit with him and chat and spend time.
My prince rocks!!!!
I can't wait for him to be home! I miss him so so much!!! And so do the kids.
As Brandon so nicely put it - "I am looking forward to being boring." We have had enough drama over the last 2 years....can't wait to answer the question "what's new" with "nothing".
