Barry's Stem Cell Transplant on Wed 04/07/2010

On Wednesday April 7th, 2010 at around 11:00 a.m., Barry got an infusion of stem cells.  The event was very anticlimactic.  As you can see from the pictures above, the stem cells look very similar to a bag of red blood cells.  The mean time to engraftment is about eighteen days so now we just have to wait until Day +18 to see where he is at with his engraftment.
