Transplant (Stem Cells Infusion) Done

Sue Min's stem cells were infused to Min Ser at 3.45pm and done in 2 hours. It's basically like blood transfusion, but of a lighter red colour (more translucent). No averse reaction during transfusion. Total collection was 6.87 mil. So yay, above the 5 mil targeted!

Post transfusion days start with a (+). Ie: starting tomorrow is +1. Now to wait for his counts to go down (+1 onwards) and when Sue Min's stem cells engraft well, his counts will pick up again (+10 to +14). Once his white blood cell count reaches <1.0 and he feels well, he can be discharged.

Post transfusion, 3 months, 6 months and 1 year are milestones. So the one year goal is to reach day +365 in good health!

Counts as of today:
WBC: 0.35
HB (red): 8.9
Platelet: 77
