Another Round 2 Update

Sean's transplant went just fine. The smell from the preservative wasn't as bad as it was last time, which was a huge relief for me! He seems to be doing a little bit better than he did last time. His white blood cell counts dropped late last week after the transplant (which is normal and expected) and then today we saw an increase from 0.6 to 0.7. Hopefully he'll be close to 1.0 tomorrow and then they should jump up from there. If everything keeps going the way it has been it looks like we'll be coming home as planned, on December 14. Sean's still sick though, just from the chemo and medications and stuff, but he's looking forward to getting out of the hospital and he's resting a lot too. He's going to be having an abdominal CT scan later this week, and he'll probably be getting his pheresis catheter too. We'll let everyone know how those go. That's all for now!
