Barclay finished his last chemo yesterday and had to have a blood transfusion so it was a long day for him. This was round 5.
We saw the social worker and the Nurse Practioner on Tuesday. The traffic was insane and it took us almost twice as long as it normally would since we hit the 8 am traffic. I won’t be doing that again any time soon.
So the social worker thing was just a repeat of the last one and the NP was informative. The most exciting news was his blasts have gone to 1% from 9 and that is GREAT news.
We are now in the final month before he goes in. The brother is set up with the national bone marrow registry and has the dates set for Neupogen shots and then the harvest on the apheresis machine. So Barclay will go in 5 days before for chemo and get a Hickman catheter put in. So we are ready to go!!!
We still are trying to figure out the details on lodging and the best so far is the Kiwanis house which is on the UCD campus. There are individual rooms and bathrooms but the kitchen is shared. Not really my style but it’s a walk away and is only $50 a night. the other option is an Extended stay but it’s about 10 miles away. So we’ll just have to see. I’m checking Airbnb but they are more like a $100 a night or higher. So I might check out a few and message the owners about a 2-3 week stay.
My oncology appt today was canceled as the doctor was not going to be in. So that was good because I didn’t really feel like driving back down to Sacramento. So I’ll see him in May although I left him a message that the appt maybe when B is going in so I’d just have to see.
I went to town to get my new glasses but they didn’t fit right so they need to be sent to the lab to have the bridge redone.
Oh well, the prescription is the same so my glasses are fine for now.
Dinner is something my daughter is making so I don’t have to cook!!
