Transplant Day!!!!!!!

It's Transplant Day! My son is receiving his bone marrow transplant today, which is exhilarating and terrifying. I couldn't sleep. I won't go into details here, but it is all on Steve's Blog.
Knitting has been sporadic lately. Basically I fall asleep on the first row I try to knit. I've even bungled Clapotis, which is very, very hard to do.
I did finish another chemo cap, in a cheerier color of dark red Rowan's Calmer this time. Shedir again, but with a cuff which Steven likes. He's still bald as a billiard, and perhaps this will comfort him through the fevers.
And then there is the anticipation of the next pattern in Sock Madness II. My cousin MtMom has designed one of these last two patterns. Is this THE ONE? We'll know shortly. I just checked her blog and this one is hers. Way to go, Cousin!

Please keep us updated as to his status. I am so excited that this day is finally here and I hope it provides him with exactly what he needs to get better and back up to 100%! Lots of us are pulling for him!

It sounds like the transplant went very well. I hope his recovery is as uneventful as the transplant, and his health returns soon!
Love and prayers for you both.
