Quick Update

We are 7 1/2 hours into the ATG round and so far Riley is doing great! She has slept the majority of the day including snoozing through 90% of her bath…no joke…I would post a picture but no need to put photos of baby girls bits up on the internet, ya’ll believe me and I’m sure can invision how pathetically adorable she looked 🙂 She woke up near the end confused as all get out but very happy, she is a trooper with a capital T!

Post bath happiness 🙂

I went and had my first injection of Neupogen which I will now be getting twice daily until they do cell collection on Tuesday. The Neupogen will basically ramp up my stem cell production so that I will have plenty to share with little Riley Jane. Apparently side effects will be bone pain, headaches, dizziness, nausea and the occasional spleen rupture…I’ll do my best to avoid that last one as it would be quite inconvenient at this time. The shot itself wasn’t bad at all…it was in my belly so that nice post pregnancy tire I’ve been rocking around my waist really came in handy, all that jiggle masked the sting of the poke…fantastic! 😉 So far no major discomfort, I just feel a bit fuzzy. I did reserve a room at the Family House down the street in case I become too uncomfortable I’ll just sneak away to moan and groan while someone else stays with Riley.

Hopefully the evening will continue on uneventful with little to no discomfort for both Riley and myself. Wish us luck!

  1. Been following u and precious baby Riley’s journey from the start, and though this is my first comment, I wish u both the best. I wake up in the morning looking forward to a new update on her progress. I can’t imagine what u are going through every day, but in the end u will bring her home, I know it!!! She is such a fighter and u are an awesome fighter along with her, and because of that, she will be a better person. She started life a fighter and she will end it as a fighter, at he ripe old age of about 100…lol. Wishing the best and praying for u and ur beautiful lil fighter named Riley Jane!!!
