Starting my injections

  Well this morning I started giving myself subcutaneous injections in the stomach, two injections of Neupogen  each morning for 6 days. This drug is used to increase the number of hematopoietic stem cells in the blood before collection by leukapheresis for use in hematopoietic stem cell transplantation. Once I finish the injections a temporary central line will be placed in my neck and the stem cells will be harvested.
