Such a busy day! Take a ride with me:
Checked out of the hotel and into our apartment. It's quite nice and decorated exactly like your grandma's would be, cozy, comforting and welcoming:) Thanks again Church Apartment Ministries!
Enjoyed my "last meal" before admission: bloody steak, a big salad, plate of veggies, and berries for dessert. Gotta love the now 'forbidden' foods.
Checked into the hospital around 8:30 pm when my room was ready. There is a big sign on my door saying "STOP wash hands thoroughly! Wear mask and gloves! In isolation!". They ain't kidding. I'm on the PEDS floor which means lots o bright colors and friendly nurses, a 'teen and young adult room' and a half court bball room. Oh, p.s. there's a freaking Wii in my room! SO glad we were given the option of being on this floor. And not just for the Wii perks, I promise.
Chemotherapy, fludarabine to be specific, starts at 6am tomorrow and will only take about an hour. MMMMMMMM eggs and chemo for breakfast! Does it come with ketchup?
At the moment P is sleeping on the trundle bed in the room, Mom is back at the apartment because she's got the sniffles:( and I'm bald as the day is long, hooked up to my IV and watching Jersey Shore on my laptop.
So, dear friends, goodnight. Tomorrow is a big day, I've got my mala at the ready and the intention of those 108 Ganapati mantras to go with the chemo.
Much love to Philly and beyond and thank you for the 25(+!) comments of well wishing and support. Keep 'em coming y'all!!
Miss all of you greatly.
