This is MY journey with MS! I give you my thoughts, feelings, hopes, and prayers. My wish that one day this disease will come to an end. That one day there will be a cure. For now, I hold on to possibility. I HOPE this will help and inspire not only myself but others.

DAY 7 - GI JANE DAY

This is Judy again. Today is day +7. We are anxiously awaiting the day +14. Seven more days of this to go and then the numbers should start to come in.
Well, Jaime has shaved her head. Looks kinda cute if I do say so myself. She's got that GI Jane look! Her hair was falling out yesterday and when that starts the itching that goes along with it is pretty unbearable, so the best thing to do is to shave her head. We are fully prepared for this and Jaime has a number of cute hats and scarves to cover her head and a gret looking wig. I understand that it is really easy to get chilled, because you lose so much heat from your head. The things you learn while undergoing a transplant!

Jaime is still experiencing all the side effects of chemotherapy. I actually thinking she is improving a little. She is not so pale and actually has a little color in her cheeks. Her white cell count is still zero. They gave her transfusions of blood and plateletts yesterday. She still has fevers that come and go.

Things seem to be pretty stable (although Jaime may not think so) and for that we are grateful. We will continue to keep you posted.

Thank you for all of your comments, good wishes and prayers. We appreciate you all!

Hi Judy and Jaime,
It's so good of you to keep us posted, Judy. I appreciate it. Hoping for your little white cells to return and bring you back to good health - hopefully with less MS! Stay Positive.
