Day 0

We are officially day 0. What an exciting and nerve wrecking day this has been. Katlyn now has her new bone marrow so that she may have a brand new immune system. She now has a very low cell count from the chemotherapy and will continue to feel the effects of chemo for the next 2-3 weeks. Here's hoping that side effects are minimal. She is very susceptible to infection, so we must do our best to keep her as safe as we can. Then slowly her new marrow will engraft and her cells will multiply. This is the start of a new life for our baby girl. As she was saying all day "Im one step closer to having a dog." Please continue to pray for katlyn as this is a very exciting and scary time.
