"Sure no problem. The GRN163L took care of the myeloma. I just have to go back for a few more weeks to prove it. You'll notice how great I feel and pleased I am. Shall we do some dreaming?"
That led to many laughs and lots of scheming and fantasizing about dreams and how to realize them.
The gory details of the first week involve mostly emotional trauma. Going back to Roswell every day except Thursday was more ominous than I expected. Lots of pokes, pissing and a bone marrow aspirate. On infusion day they took about 360 cc (1.5 cups) of blood over about 4 1/2 hours. No, none, zilch, zip, nada side effects!
