Project Brother: Phase 2

At 11:00 am pacific time this morning (Sat. January 10, 2015), my brother in law started to receive the infusion of stem cells. The procedure lasted approximately 3 hours. At 7:00 pm eastern time, my husband was having a telephone conversation with his brother.

The next 2 weeks (within the 100 day critical period), my brother in law will remain in the hospital, closely monitored for any signs of rejection, infection, and issues with his kidneys. (He had a kidney transplant approximately 15 years ago.)

So, if you can, please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.

Thank you!

      Thanks so much! I really appreciate your prayers. The next 13 days can be rough at times; other days better. We’re hoping for the better, of course.

    That’s good news, must be a relief to your husband knowing his brother is doing well. Positive thoughts will continue.

      Thanks.
      I have been working on an email draft about Lucas’ work for ages! So, I haven’t forgotten. I’ve been blown away by his creativity, playfulness, and skill. More in the email. Creativity runs in the family — you create with words, Lucas with multimedia.
