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.
