At 11am, Wednesday July 29th, the Grossman's welcomed a new addition to their family.
Jonathan Paul Grossman
Yup, day 0 is the start of the new Jonathan andddd a new birthday! [Sorry Bubbie, but this is now the day he was welcomed into the world!]
So you're probably wondering, how did it go?
At 7am, PST, I woke up, turned on my computer, called dad via Skype, and watched as the nurse played around with various tubes and buttons. And then I called dad again because the connection had dropped...And again...And a few more times before it finally connected. Right in time for me to watch it going in.
It was quite uneventful... Dad started by talking to me while he was sitting up as the stem cells, which he said resembled tomato juice, started to go into his body. He eventually got more tired and had to lean back.
Then, to my excitement, he started "cookie whoofing." Just as I started eating a muffin. Mmm.
He threw up a few more times but seems ok now. Im watching him as he sits up in his bed. He's not the happiest camper, as mom put it, but it's all going to be worth it in the end.
The transplant ended at around 11:03 EST.
Happy birthday dad~
PS; this is Jason with the balloon he bought dad that says "it's a boy"
And this is mom with the Joe Louis she brought dad [since he can't have cake!]
