I should've left the nice Van's shirt home. It got beaten up by all the spray bleach I have to use on things when I clean here (stem cell transplantees have ZERO immunity).
Sheesh, don't worry about the Vans shirt. I'll have a couple of shirts sent to you if you just PM me your address.
I'm going through something similar with my wife who was diagnosed with Mantle Cell Lymphoma in May. It's a change for sure when the neutrophils and white blood cells drop so low that infection is a real possibility. I learned a whole new vocabulary starting with Rituximab (Rituxan) and Bendamustine (Treanda) You got this.
