Today is another trip to the hospital but before I go down I will try and do my Flylady zone. It’s the bedroom so that is generally not too involved. I did call a house cleaning service to check on a ‘deep’ clean and I’d like an estimate. If it’s reasonable I’ll schedule that for […]
So yesterday was insanely busy. We had to be out the door at 7:15am to get to the local oncologists’ appt. That went well. Then B had to go get his labs. Then we decided to go get bagels at our local organic bakery because we were going to head to Sacramento to check out […]

Well, it is going to be a lovely sunny day so I’m going to enjoy that. Our yard is looking so pretty with daffodils, and the lawns turning bright green. Here’s the flowering cherry which is the prettiest bloom I’ve seen in a few years. Last year these trees were hit with a late frost […]
Yesterday was the new UCD transplant doctor appointment. It went absolutely brilliant. He’s a very fine man and has great bedside manners and told us most of what we need to know. The transplant only has a 50/50 chance of it working which we did know. With his brothers match it increases slightly. The real […]
So I talked with the bone marrow transplant coordinator for UHC this week to find out the actual numbers of our co-pay. She didn’t really know that but said that since Sutter was out of network, there could be unexpected bills that will show up. So I asked if we switch to in-network that won’t […]
