Riley had a Stem Cell Transplant🎗
This was the most difficult part of his treatment plan. Really difficult.
We spent a long 9 weeks in hospital.
Riley had his own Stem Cells Transplanted after 2 weeks of High Dosed Chemotherapy.
You can see from these pictures Riley was in pain and uncomfortable. He did get extremely poorly and was rushed to intensive care twice with septic shock and a number of other infections. He was needing a low percent of oxygen. He had really bad mucositis where he couldn’t eat or drink at all and was having to have water by a sponge onto his lips.
With spending nine weeks in hospital laying in a hospital bed he actually found it difficult to get up and walk again, But little by little he managed to get his muscles working again.
These 9 weeks were the hardest to deal with physically and emotionally. Been in the same room for 9 weeks. We were literally in isolation. It was really hard.
