+12 – Whoop Whoop

Sept. 16, 2013 – +12

Number numbers are in for the day, and they are awesome! Leuk 9.4, great news. Normal is 4.0 – 10.00, so I’m totally in the zone.

So, Dr. F says, my Rituxmab Infusion will be scheduled for tomorrow. Great news, to get that last big thing out of the way. This will kill off any rouge B cells the Chemo didn’t already take care of. It takes about 5 hours for the infusion, so all afternoon. He said I can walk in the morning before they get started. Kristy’s having her’s now, so I’ll see how she does. Usually not too bad, but they like to monitor you for a few days to make sure you are ok. So, glad not waiting until next week and I’m ready to board that big bird to fly home. He also said he will start tapering my off steroids, so I will notice an increase in fatigue, just part of the prep to get home.

Met my new neighbor today, Keith Moore and his wife Tanya, from Canada. He’s now on the third floor, where the real magic happens. He’s room is between Kristy’s and mine, so hope he can keep it down in there. 🙂 They have three beautiful young sons, and it’s been nice for Tanya to be here getting him settled, but I’m sure she can’t wait to see her boys again. Keith is being left in very good hands.
Whoop Whoop… this music was suggested by Brooke Slick, get that blood pumping.

    The hits just keep coming!!! We hope the infusion goes well and does not leave you too weak. May you enjoy your morning walk. Time is growing short for your stay in Russia! Glad to see you enjoying M&M’s peanut candies. “Big Bird” day can’t get there soon enough. Love from Texas
