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.
