Before I get my next stem-cell transplant, I have to go into the hospital for 2-3 days, to get more Chemotherapy. This will reduce my current tumors, enough so that I am eligible to receive a strangers stem cells.
For those of you not familiar with the process, the chemotherapy does not hurt, but it is usually tiring.
They space out this process for every 3 weeks, which gives the chemicals time to to leave my body.
Its somewhat like the process of radiation, which can last around two weeks after the procedure.
I'll probably wind up in the big hospital for my stem-cell transplant in the middle of June.
This will be the third year in a row, where I miss much of the major league baseball season.
I usually take in a Dodger, Orioles, and National's game, with my friends. This is a lot of fun.
Once in awhile, I take in a minor-league game. Baseball is still a family spectator sport, although, I must admit, at being a little shocked when a second baseman, hitting .250 gets a couple of million dollars a year.
