+5 Rock steady…

Sept. 9, 2013 +5

Well, my numbers are holding steady, Leuk – 0.1 (so looks like it’s hit a plateau), still looking at 4-5 days for engraftment, so we still wait and hope those little buggers get ready for a party in my system and want to grow and re-produce, (close your eyes, give them some privacy here).
privacy Quiet Please!

The other numbers are all good, everything is ticking right along. I’m blessed that the other numbers are good, they mean my energy levels aren’t too bad. I do nap, but not as much as you’d think. I stopped taking sleeping pills, over a week ago and stopped the magnesium I was taking for the painful Spasticity I usually suffered from in the late afternoons and evenings.

We have a new HSCT patient that arrived from Canada and is being admitted today, Welcome Keith. With my computer power issues, I was able to ask him to bring me a new converter so hopefully I’ll continue to have charge on my laptop the rest of my stay. The exchange has been made, and I hope to meet him and his wife next week, when I’m out of ISO.

On the hair front, it’s still holding strong. Kristy and I have a race to see whose will fall out fastest, but so far, my little numbs are holding tight. Shoot, it’s not even as grey as it seemed when they first shaved it. Yes, and this gown may be a keeper, they come in a wide variety of blues, purple, and pinks. This may catch-on, I could be a trend setter.

    As temperatures are finaling beginning to cool here in Saint Augustine, I couldn’t help but think of you and Dottie walking down the road enjoying the cool breezes. I so miss seeing you both! As I looked over your rising numbers, I couldn’t help but smile knowing that everything is going to be ok. I miss you my friend. Take care and keep your positive attitude! Hugs, Linda
