We heard this evening that Gerry’s blood count is good enough to start the harvest tomorrow – hooray!
We’d heard it wasn’t uncommon for the growth hormone shots to go on for a few more days – we’re glad to be moving on to the next level of this adventure. I swear, it’s like a video game.
This makes us oddly giddy – as if Gerry’s done something very smart with his little cells (and he has!)
So tomorrow at 7:00 am we’ll be at Gonda with bells on, and they’ll start the harvesting (separating the stem cells from other blood cells.)
We’ll have a threshing party and we’ll hope for the best! Harvest is always such a fun time!
