I am home, for now.
I am finally in what is to be my "normal" routine. I will be home for two weeks and then I will be admitted to the hospital for a round of chemo, which will last for about a week.
I have a bone marrow biopsy and a spinal tap on the first day I am admitted and on the day I am discharged.
The two weeks I am home, I have to go every morning to my local hospital and get a complete blood count done (CBC). If my counts are low, I have to be given blood and platelets. Luckily, that can also be done here at my local hospital and I don't have to make the four hour round trip to the leukemia hospital. It takes almost five hours for the blood and platelets to be transfused.
Every morning, I have to take three pills and give myself a shot. Every night, I have to take three different pills and give myself three shots.
This is going to be my life until they can find me a donor and do a bone marrow transplant.
I am scheduled to be readmitted for another round of chemo on the 27th. After it is done and I am home again for my two weeks, my goal is to announce the winners of the last necklace and purse giveaway. I am also planning on starting up the necklace giveaway next month on the 15th, with the understanding that things can change at any time and there might be a delay in mailing the prize or I might have to end the giveaway early.
