... but this one goes to eleven.

The bad news: The line is still in my neck, and I don't get to come home tomorrow.

The good news: I'm not a stem-cell loser!

My CD34 is up to 11! Woo hoo! This means I can collect tomorrow. Most likely, I will collect for just one day and head home over the weekend (maybe), but we'll see how it goes.

Woooo! Its like doing mediocre on the midterm and then acing the final... the success is that much sweeter. We'll be hoping for your last 1.5 mill to just jump right out!

Yay, Karen! What an accomplishment. Do you plan on using them soon? My first collection was easy, since it was preceded by Cytoxan and nuepogen. The second one, just neupogen. I only got 5 million the second time, so I think the Cytoxan makes all the difference in the world. When does that catheter come out?

From someone who knows,

PS - On my blog I have pics of the catheters I used, plus the insertion site if you want to see them.
