Braithwaite's Transplant 'Very Good'

November 15, 2012, 6:53 PM by Brady Mallory

Braithwaite's Transplant 'Very Good'
ROCHESTER, MN -

A well-known Sioux Falls physician is recovering and in good condition following his bone marrow transplant at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.

After almost a decade of battling cancer, high dosages of chemotherapy left Dr. Tom Braithwaite in need of a bone marrow transplant.  It was supposed to happen on November 14 at 10:30 p.m., but Tom's sister, Mindy, said there was a bit of a delay.

"(The stem cells) actually arrived about 11:30 p.m., went to the lab for final inspection and the transplant began about 1:30 a.m. today," Mindy Braithwaite said. 

Mindy said the delay actually made the transplant even more special.

"Today would have been our Dad's 86th birthday and now here it is Tom's "re-birth" day!" Mindy said.

Tom is doing well and was able to eat breakfast.  He could be released from the hospital Thursday afternoon or by Friday.
