Stem Cell Transplant: Then

Hi Keep Pounding Rob Team!

Stem Cell Transplant: Then

We wanted to pick a few pictures that signify a year ago today, when Rob began the stem cell transplant for Multiple Myeloma.

Side note: For those new to Rob’s blog, welcome! Feel free to read Rob’s journey on this blog, from diagnoses to stem cell transplant, to living with Mulitple Myeloma through the 1 year anniversary of the transplant today, 2/27/20!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Please don’t hesitate to contact us at KeepPoundingRob@gmail.com if you’d like to talk with another Multiple Myeloma patient and/or caregiver. πŸ™‚

Part of the stem cell transplant. We are so thankful to the stem cell transplant team!!

Stem Cell Harvest, a two day procedure that harvested one million stem cells. 1/3 to be used for the transplant, 1/3 to be used for research, and 1/3 to be stored in reserve. The Apheresis Unit at Levine is outstanding on so many levels!

Each foot represented a walk down the hall, often times with great difficulty but incredible determination. The caring teams at Atrium 4B had these feet that Rob picked up after each walk. They were so encouraging, and helped Rob gain a new appreciation for walking in general, and they are truly angles here on earth.

Playing some cards during his 2 1/2 week stay (the first time, and his 1 week stay the second). If anyone new to the stem cell transplant world is reading this, cards and board games help pass the time after transplant.
Ringing the bell on 4B, on the way home from Rob’s stem cell transplant!
