Today I had a post discharge follow up with the doctor who did my transplant.  The doctor took out all my staples on my sternum and thigh. Yay!  No more foreign objects on my body.  I just have 2 ‘holes’ that need to close: the trach site and the picc line site.

The best news of the day is that I showered for the first time in over 5 weeks.  A REAL shower. All by myself.  In my own bathroom. Gone are the hospital washcloth ‘baths’, spot cleanings, and bad shampoos.  One of the meds I’m on causes my skin to be really thin and dry so after my shower I took the time to lotion thoroughly.  I feel like a new person.
