Monday 24th. Two weeks since I came in, 1 week tomorrow since transplant.

Picked up first infection today, blooming docs were right! Spent pretty much the entire day asleep having antibiotics, fluids and blood transfusion.

Still struggling with the lack of ability to eat/swallow/talk or drink now apparently. Still, my theory is we've done 1 week post transplant so hopefully we will see some counts in the next week and it will all start to get better x

Sorry to hear about the infection Josie. Fingers crossed that the antibiotics do their job and kick that in to touch as soon as possible so your body can concentrate on developing a new immune system which will enable it to tackle these things on its own in the future.

Eating does get tough. Keep going as long as you can. The worst case scenario is they'll add a feeding tube to help you.

I really admire the way that you're handling everything. You're doing so well and I've got everything crossed that that first white cell emerges soon to give you a lift.

This is the tough bit. I remember the young doctor who held my hand and told me that they were going to get me through the infections and get me healthy again. Try just a bit of chicken, suck the jelly until it is almost liquid, and take my drugs offered. Hope you start to feel better soon xx
