Day 0 – transplant day 

Another step closer to Seth being able to come home. 

Today Seth has been ok. He’s been sick a few times but he’s remained temperature free. However he has tested positive for the HHV6, although at a low level. 

So we spent the day waiting for the cells to be manipulated and made ready for Seth. This includes a lot of maths making sure that the right number of the right cells are given. At 5.30pm the cells went up and the infusion started. 

As they came in to give the drug Seth got upset and a bit scared as he didn’t know what was going to happen. But within a few minutes of it running he was sat on his bed watching Mr Bean cartoons and colouring in!!!



So what now?

Well Seth’s journey is far from over. The effects of the chemo will get worse and continue for another 2 weeks. In addition the new cells have to find their home and start work, hopefully without causing problems. 

So the major first step to recovery has started, it may bring complications but we still have to take it day by day

    He looks really good in his photo. He seems less puffy. Is the fluid in/out thing better? So glad he has gotten the magic and we are always praying. If he feels better tomorrow, quite a few people are posting pics. They don’t go to your wearyellowforseth site, however they go to the public #wearyellowforseth site. We took our picture just a short time ago and posted it. I know this is only beginning for you all, however he is such a little fighter that I truly believe you are all going to get through this!! Much love from South Dakota.

    Thanks so much for the update! I have been thinking about you and your family throughout the postings of this journey so far! I had a stem cell transplant 13 years ago somewhat similar to what your husband and son are going through except I was my own donor. I will continue to keep all of you in my thoughts and prayers. Sending lots of love and positive energy to all of you! – Jemma, Chicago, IL.

    I read ur blogs as soon as u put them up. Thankyou for taking the time, I don’t know
    How u do it. However I understand that journaling is a good form of self therapy and a wonderful gift for Seth when he is older and can look back and read ur words. U are all amazing, Seth is a freakin star, all golden and yellow shining in the world and deep in our hearts. Newcastle Australia

    Just wanted to say I was thinking of you today. My son Oscar had his 4th birthday today and I requested that his friends wear yellow for Seth. Most of them did. Oscar had his transplant in Feb 2012 and I think Seth is in the same room! Positive thoughts and prayers with you all x Will try and get some photos sent over to you x

    I continue to pray for Seth and your family every day. Your blog makes me feel so connected that not a day goes by that I don’t think of Seth. I pray for the day he can go home and just be a little boy. May God bless you all! Bruce D. Goodrich, Michigan, USA
