I can’t believe I am almost 3 weeks out from my transplant! When I think about how homesick I am I actually CAN believe it! Wade and I have been in Houston for 36 days! We’ve had a very nice weekend with no hospital trips, and had no problems working the IV pump at home. Sore throat is much better…things are looking up! My main symptoms are coldness, loss of appetite, tiredness, little bit of nausea, some headaches. I tried to drink a Dr. Pepper today for the first time and it tasted terrible! I couldn’t believe it because I have always been a huge DP fan – it was my soft drink! Sense of taste is just a little messed up by chemo. Tomorrow I will go to the hospital bright and early at 7:00 and have blood work and see my team for evaluation and get magnesium (unless they decide to send more home with me). I am ready to see what they are thinking. It’s a beautiful hot summer day here, lots of people at the pool. Our outing will be a trip to the grocery store later this evening. Here is a picture of that marvelous pump that has allowed me some freedom!
