22nd April: Saved by the …..



Once again I had to have another line entered, this time for the heart scan I had on Monday.  You guessed it after two more failed attempts in my arm the foot once again saved the day!


The Harvest

On Tuesday I awoke to the suprising yet wonderful news that they were going to Harvest!!!  The bone pain from the injections had become intense so this was a relief to hear.






5 hours later after being attached to this very cool machine in a FREEZING cold room, they had collected 10 MILLION BEAUTIFUL STEMMIES!






On  returning to my room I quickley developed a temperature of 38.2!


Lesson learnt – even if it’s cold don’t stop drinking water




3.5+ Litres drunk VERY quickley!


Night of NO SLEEP, IV antibiotics, bloods taken, temp fluctuating between 37.8 & 38.4 = SCARY TIMES!


Be Reassured since then I have been drinking 4+ litres a day!





Harvest #2


On Wednesday I harvested again; 8 Million Stemmies in just 2 hours!!!

This was a back up incase there bad bacteria from in the once previously harvested.
