Stem Cell Harvest, Day One

Hi Keep Pounding Rob Team!

Rob is physically and emotionally exhausted from day one of the stem cell harvest. We were at Atrium from 5:30 am-6:30 pm.

He experienced some side effects like tingling and numbing over the face and hands. which became extremely uncomfortable. They briefly stopped the stem cell harvest in order to give some medicine through his IV, which thankfully helped.

Stem cell harvests can take anywhere from 1-3 days.

The collection goal today was 12 million stem cells. They collected 5 million.

Therefore, we will have another long day at Atrium tomorrow, and possibly a third on Thursday.

I will add more details on today and further updates tomorrow from Atrium.

Prayer Requests:

Keep Pounding Team, we could really use your prayers please!

Please pray for Rob as he keeps pounding a second day tomorrow, and possibly a third day for the stem cell harvest.

Please pray for his patience, strength and faith to stay strong, even as his body is extremely weak tonight from the stem cell harvest.

Please pray for the brave and encouraging friends we are meeting on the same journey.

Thank you so much for your prayers, support and love!!
