Ready, Set, Go!

Tomorrow’s the day I’ve been waiting on since I found out about HSCT and now it’s almost here. I’m packing up my hotel room and getting things ready to make the transition to the hospital in the morning.

We arrived in Moscow a few days early to see some of the sights, I totally recommend it. The only money I spent to sightsee was the ticket for the hop on, hop off bus that took us around town to get the lay of the land, that was it. So much is free, or just looking at the sights, you can’t be here and NOT see the sights. The metro only cost about $1.00 and it’s really not difficult to navigate from the Vega Hotel, just 5 stops on the blue line (the only line near our hotel), and your in the middle of everything. Red Square, the Kremlin, Lennon’s Tomb, Basil Cathedral, GUM department store, and the list goes on. So, get here a couple of days early and see the sights.

So, tomorrow I’ll meet Dr. F and hopeful he will find that I’m fit enough to endure the treatment. I have a lot of people that helped me get here, so I don’t want to let them down, or me either. I know this is where I need to be and what I need to be doing to give me the best chance to stop this disease.

It’s late, and I have a big day tomorrow. I’ll be posting more regularly once admitted, I’ve had some internet problems and other technical difficulty. Word of advise for those coming next, make sure you test out off or you plugs with the converters to make sure you have everything to keep you charged up. FYI, they do sell three prong converters in the hotel lobby for $150 R, if you can find someone working that counter.

I’ll post some photos tomorrow, it’s getting late and I have a really, really big day ahead of me.
