Everything looks good to get the CAR-T cells today. White blood count is sufficiently dismal to make room for the CAR-T cells to move in and proliferate. And I’m getting some extra fluid for my slightly low blood pressure.
I passed my baseline neurological test with flying colors (now I sound like our former president). I asked them if I started to not do as well would I notice or would still think I was doing fine. They said I wouldn’t notice and they would still tell me I was doing great! I found this comforting. They also said neurotoxicity in myeloma patients getting CAR-T is not very common (but possible).
The cells are currently being thawed in a water bath and I should get them early this afternoon. It is somewhat of a non-event, but the attending did say congratulations on his way out 🍾
The nurse asked me last night if I wanted my cells blessed. This took me aback. And then I received some beautiful words from some friends and know that I am already blessed.

May each cell be the hope we can’t see but believe will be the cure.
I bless you, and all your cells; I bless the cells you are about to receive; I bless the minds and spirits, and brains and bodies, and spirits of every person, and every energetic and vibrational presence involved in this process.
