Mallory here. Mom checked into Emory on Monday morning. She's been undergoing several different rounds of chemotherapy in preparation for her stem cell transplant on August 2nd. This chemo has been tough. Luckily we have been graced by the assistance and moral support of our Aunt Devette. She and mom share a unique ability to provide humor and sass to any situation and having her here has been a breath of fresh air.
Mom will undergo her transplant next Wednesday. After that, it will be two weeks of recovery. Days 6-10 after the procedure are expected to be the worst, so make sure to be fiercely praying on August 8-12. If all goes well, we expect to be discharged on August 16. We see the light at the end of the tunnel. Hopefully these next three weeks move quickly.
Thank you for your prayers, notes, and endless support for my family. Please forgive us if we don't respond as quickly as we would like. We hope to provide another update soon.
Until next time!
