Apheresis (stem cell rescue) is in process. I am learning SO much!!

I have some better pictures that I will post later.

Our apheresis supervisor (Amber) thinks we may be able to get all of the white blood cells we need today over the 5 1/2 hour treatment. We should know tonight around 8:00 how many cells they were able to rescue. Our ideal number is 15 million.

So far, so good.


  1. That whole process, what I sort of understand of it :), is pretty amazing! Hoping you got all the white blood cells you needed and he doesn't have to have that in longer than today!

  2. Amazing! What a blessing that they can do what they are doing for Jackson. He is a fighter.


Thank you for taking time to comment. I read each and every comment to Jackson and they brighten his spirits. He loves that you are supporting him through reading his blog.
