    5 Year Anniversary on FIM

    Almost missed my 5 year anniversary here on Fim, but can you blame me when I have to go through another stem cell since my last one failed?

    Home!

    So since December 20th I was in the hospital for the stem cell transplant. First 5 days were very strong chemo to destroy everything. Day 6 was a rest day. Then day 7 was the transplant and what not. They then switch to a system called Day + whatever.
    Day + 1-2 went okay. Then 3-5 happened. Nothing but sleeping and other stuff while everything went to absolute 0.

    Hmmm, Welp

    Turns out I need a Stem Cell Transplant next month with a different type of Chemo.
    A lot of sciencey mumbo jumbo that would make Twilight go crazy. I'll need to be in the hospital for most, if not all of December, including through Christmas and New Years

    21

    Well, I hit the supposed big event of hitting 21 years old today.
    Lived to see it with everything going on. Sadly I cant get a drink with all the chemo and drugs.
    Still, a birthday is a birthday

    Where I've been the last few months

    Since late July, I've been in the hospital and just got out a few weeks ago.
    Turns out I have cancer. Something called non hodgkin's lymphoma.
    I had a growth the size of a softball just outside my stomach and a few smaller growths.

+6-10 were probably the roughest in my opinion. I got something called Engraftment Syndrome - High grade fever(102+), rashes and many other things. This happened for 3 days straight at night. First thing to appear, chills then feeling like verything was on fire. BUT I am home now and fine.

Glad you are home and I wish you the best. :pinkiehappy:

Oh, fun. At least it wasn't GVHD. A friend of mine that had an analogous transplant had that happen to him.

But yeah, ES is just something that happens early on after the transplant. Glad to hear you're home and doing well now. If you need someone to talk to, just reach out to me on Discord, okay? The at-home recovery period can be a drag since you're not really allowed to go anywhere.
