Stem Cells!

Today Brian got his first dose of stem cells via IV injection! He did just fine with it, no adverse reactions. He's a bit hard to get an IV on; the nurse had to stick him twice. Friday is his next stem cell injection, via lumbar puncture and IV.

Grainne & Sean managed to find an ATM to get some cash (nobody in China takes plastic and ATMs aren't all that common). Near the ATM was a street market selling all sorts of cool stuff. Some pictures are posted below. Grainne got splashed with fish jumping out of the tubs twice! She was not happy about that. We got some terrific-looking tomatoes, peppers, onions and cilantro to make some delicious salsa, which we had with some scrambled eggs and a loaf of bread (no chips!). 

Other than that, not too much to report for today. Tomorrow Brian has two physical therapy sessions at 8 am and 2:30 pm. Grainne and Shane are heading into Beijing with Juan, so Sean will be minding Brian most of the day. 

More to come later!
