T Day + 8
Still waiting for those stem cells to kick in...
Sabine is still pretty weak but gets out daily for her walk despite the extreme inflammation in her throat which prevents her from eating, low-grade fever and jumpy bowels. She gets her hydration now intravenously.
In addition, she has had both blood and platelet transfusions to keep her strength up. She also receives a human growth hormone daily to invigorate cell growth.
Nevertheless, Dr Longo and able crew feel everything is going as it should be as her blood numbers are just about zero. So, wait.
Her daily labs will reveal when the new stem cells start grabbing hold.
Our nurse and othe medical team members have been simply great!
