"He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my soul."
Tammy was admitted this morning to KU Med Center to get the bone-marrow transplant process started. She was very calm. I think the nurses were a little puzzled as they went through the check-in process. Tammy answered all their questions and just smiled at them. I think she was supposed to be stressed out.
She is in room 4104, in the BMT unit. Her phone number is 913-588-4104. I'm sure she would love calls or visits. If you do plan to visit, please remember that you cannot be sick in any way; they won't let you in if you are coughing, sneezing or anything like that. The area must be kept germ-free.
As she gets the chemotherapy this week, she might be pretty sick. Please call before coming to see her, and understand if she is not feeling well enough for visitors.
