Dad/Jim/Pop-Pop went into the hospital Wednesday afternoon to begin his stem cell transplant journey! Today, January 30, he received his stem cell transplant to treat his multiple myeloma. He has been waiting patiently to begin this process. We are all hoping and praying that this transplant will heal him of his myeloma symptoms!
Jim will be living at UC Davis for at least two and half weeks. The hardest part is that he cannot leave his 12 x 12 room. His immune system is very weak so we need him to take extra special care of himself. He has a small cycle exercise thing he can use to stay strong. He has his media and books. The kids cannot visit. But healthy adults can visit!
We're praying that he doesn't experience too many yucky side effects. We're praying that his body does a beautiful dance with the stem cells. Jim said, "I am born again!" Happy Birthday, sweet Jim!
