The Actual Transplant

Here is the transplant in process. This is what the show is all about! It took about 20 minutes and was as uneventful as any infusion. I never detected the "creamed corn" odor, although one of the nurses did. It is now 9:30 pm on Day Zero and I have yet to encounter any discomfort. Hope it stays that way, but I've been assured it will not.

My hospital stay so far can be characterized as periods of boredom interrupted by periods of frantic activity. No event here seems to occur in isolation. For example, the room phone always rings when I'm talking to someone else on my cell phone. The doctor visit inevitably is interrupted by meal delivery. But all in all, the visit here has been quite comfortable. Onward to Day 1.


  1. Congratulations Ed! Day +1! In two weeks, you will be home and I will be seeing you in the clinic again. Go Superman! :)


    Your moxie is inspiring!!

    Hope to get by and see you this weekend!
