So yes, officially those little stem cells are back in my marrow, doing their thing in full effect to reboot my immune system from scratch! Of course my first question to Dr Julia was when do my isolation parameters begin to loosen? At first, she thought I may be alright to wander the halls tonight on the iso ward (with mask, etc), but after conferring with Dr. Fedorenko (who is away in Estonia presenting papers this weekend), he suggested not to loosen restrictions and to stay in complete isolation for another 24 hours. I believe the rationale for it was due to the sudden jump in the leukocyte numbers, which may predispose the individual to certain viral infections. I'll confirm that rationale upon that upon his return, however in the mean time, I'm just as happy to spend another day in here in safety, letting my body do whatever it needs to do!
