Fluids, fluids and more fluids!!

I think Ken has turned into a human sponge!! He gets more fluids than anyone I've ever seen and it's still not enough and you know what's even crazier, he still LOSES weight!

He was supposed to begin work with the transplant team yesterday, harvesting stem cells along with a laundry list of tasks but has yet to begin that as his body is still trying to recover from the chemotherapy. As each day goes by, I realize more and more what a long road we're on. The transplant team at Fred Hutchinson is AMAZING - We are extremely happy with all of the doctors, nurses and staff. He's still in good spirits and hopefully will begin the harvesting tomorrow.
