It’s a beautiful day for a stem cell transplant! The Palkos were up and at em this morning battling for the hotel bathroom to shower and get ready for our 7:30 am appointment. We arrived at Mass General to be greeted by a lot of young faces who all knew mom and dad. You could see the excitement in their eyes as they embraced dad and discussed the surgery. We were escorted upstairs where we had to say goodbye before he left to get dressed. Hugs and tears were prevalent as we separated.
He’s currently getting dressed and prepped and will go in for surgery any minute now. The procedure will take about 6-7 hours, with about 2+ hours of recovery before we can see him. We should be getting updates every now and then, and I’ll do my best to keep the blog as up to date as possible!
It’s a very exciting day and you can feel the positive energy throughout the building. Keep sending the prayers and the vibes, we can feel them!
