Matthew was discharged this afternoon and came home to a hero's welcome and tons of hugs and kissed from Claire. They were so excited to see each other. Almost a week had past since the last time they had been together. We will be home for a bit until one of two things happens. Either Matthew gets a fever which is likely to happen or he stays fever free and remains home until we begin the stem cell process. The stem cell transplant process, as you have heard me, mention, is a long one. They refer to the day of the transplant as day 0. They days leading up to that are "minus" days and the days after are "plus" days. So the process officially begins on day -30 (minus thirty) and then its fairly scripted from then on. We have not gotten to that day yet. probably in another few weeks. in the 30 days leading up to the transplant are more rounds of chemo and radiation. He is looking good and by all indications feeling pretty well. I am tired and angry.
