Pictures from the Cancer Battlefield: Part 11

Reading my Kindle in mom's room (stem cell #6 this time) while she gets her SECOND TO LAST rounds of chemo before transplant.

Mom was on isolation due to an infection, but Uncle Rick came to see her anyway - so nice to see them all!  (L-R: Sean, me, mom, Rick O'Mahony, Angie O'Mahony, and cousin Pamela Jenkins)

Mom and Uncle Rick.
Tuckered out in out-patient.
Mom and Dad at mom's nurse, Dawn Krause's house.  She had us and some other stem cell patients over for dinner; it was very nice of her.
April and Neil Coker.  Neil headed home TODAY at 87 days!  Haha!
Sean and I at Dawn's house.
Neil (did I mention this is his THIRD stem-cell transplant?!), Dawn, and mom.
Neil, April, and Brady at Dawn's.
Whitney, mom, dad, and Sean at Dawn's.


  1. Great photos! There are bonds that come from circumstances beyond our control. What a blessing to have friends and family in a home away from home setting! Miss you, love you and pray for you. Thanks for keeping us posted!

    Love, Jeff & Carol Meyers
