Julien here. Thank you so much for all your messages, calls and support! I have felt the love and I know that my mommy and daddy have as well. They have really needed it throughout this entire journey. After all, I gave them quite a scare when I was born.
Today I had my last shot and I took it like a champ:) These shots stimulate the stem cells in my bone marrow and they will be harvested tomorrow from the tibia bone in my leg (not from my hips like I originally thought). I spent today resting at the apartment gathering all my strength for tomorrow’s big event. My parents are looking forward to a successful treatment and bringing me back to the apartment for snuggles and kisses afterwards. Mommy is feeling a little anxious and of course daddy is her rock and keeps her strong. She wants to produce as much breastmilk as possible and the doctors want me to have lots of breastmilk to help facilitate the healing process. As a result, she has been avoiding wine which she really wants right now…..LOL. At least she treated herself to a nice Mexican margarita the other day:)
I want to show mommy and daddy what a strong “super-boy” I am…….. I even have the outfit to prove it:)
Please send prayers my way tomorrow and I’ll be sure to have mommy send an update tomorrow evening. I would do it myself but I have a feeling that I’ll be busy napping and pooping 🙂
