Nashville or Bust

The trip that started a longer journey

Phase Two, Week One Underway

Early call time this morn. We started at 5:30 in Kenwood. No Craft Services.

Dave is getting his central line put in. This is the magical conduit through which stem cells will be extracted, the wicked BEAM chemo will be administered and said stem cells reintroduced into his system.

After this fun, he’ll go upstairs to receive his daily Neupogen shot. These started on Saturday. Neupogen is the super elixir that revs up the stem cells in the bone marrow, causing them to reproduce and venture out into the bloodstream. I guess you could say Dave’s system is being turned into quite the club scene.

Drink up you crazy stem cell kids and party like rock stars. The paddy wagon will pick you up on Wednesday… ~Jacqui
