Coz iv been bedridden for weeks now my legs r just sooooo weak.
I got my mum to get me some pedals to use at the end of the bed. Quite
good actually :)Today is a big day.
Im having some mesachymll stem cells (spelt wrong?)These have been used about 170 times ever in the whole world!!
They r the stem cells left over after bone marrow donors give bone
marrow harvists for transplants!When they have been put into the body, sometimes they hav should that
they just go around healing tissue? How weird?
They dont even need a tissue match?!?They have should that they can be very halpful after GVHD (and other
such times like after heart attacks)So its a big day for me, and science..................... On a bad note, i had a really horrible event last
night. I suddenly started findin it hard to breath. There was some
trapped gunk in my left lung i think, i started to panic. They were
going to send me to HDU (high dependency unit)
But i managed to get out of that, they gave me some oxygen and did these
magic blood tests that involve big metal needles that they stick into
your artery (yes artery) to test your blood glass levels.yeah my gas levels were low and my haemoglobin was about 7.6. Man i felt
sick. So iv been on oxygen all night, but im feeling alot better.So yeah im in the wars a bit....Il blog later.

you are feeling rubbish but you can still pedal...wtg!
The litle mesachymil(?) sound like science fiction, fantastic stuff, lets hope they enjoy their work and can get that healing going.
Sorry to hear that you had such a shitty night.....perhaps only gentle pedaling for a while 'eh...

Sorry to hear you had a rough night. How comes your haemoglobin was low? Good luck with the stem cells, my fingers and toes are crossed for you! The google ads at the bottom are now trying to sell me stem cell therapy by the way...

Hugs Alex! I hope they could do the ABG (arterial blood gas) through your line and didn't have to stick you with a horse needle for it. I've had far, far too many ABGs over the years, I know how badly they suck. Good job on using the pedals too - keep strong!

It's tremendous that you are able to receive such cutting-edge treatment. The stem cells, plus the constant world-wide good vibes that are heading your way, will surely put you on the road to recovery. Peddling yourself down that road also sounds a great idea - practical self-help to go along with your wonderful positve approach to life. All the best, Alex.

Mesenchymal stem cell therapy, eh? That's some seriously modern medicine, miduck... Good luck to 'em & their mopping-up operation. :)
Sorry to hear it's been so rough for you lately, hope you stop peeling soon & start breathing in a reliably relaxed fashion. Keep pedalling; can't be much longer before you're ready to mount your escape...

I'm looking forward to hearing that the science fiction stuff is working and that you don't have any more breathing problems
