Day 0 - (4/10) My New Birthday

Today is my new birthday.  My stem cell transplant happened today around 2:00 to 2:30. My total stem cell count was 151 Million (46 from round 1 and 105 from round 2).  They wanted me to have at least 75 million, so I way exceeded that number.  I feel really good today.  I think it may be a bit of an adrenaline kick knowing that today is the day.  

Below are some photos we took to celebrate the day.
