Buh bye hickman line. My doctor tried taking it without any local anestesia thinking that it would just slide out since I had it done so recently. Not so much the case. It hurt like a B!#$@!. My eyes watered and so he went to get some freezing juice and continued the procedure. Phew!

This is a calendar that the nurses filled out every day after they took my vitals at the start of the day which included my blood pressure, my pulse, temperature and blood work. These numbers are reported to the doctor and he uses them to assess how I’m doing, how I’m responding to the medication, how I’m responding to the treatment, if I need any supporting additional medicine and if I’m ready to be discharged. High dose chemotherapy was on Saturday October 25th and Sunday October 26th. Stem cell transplant was on Wednesday October 29th. First row = Day, Second row = Hemoglobin (We want this to be above 80), Third row = White Blood Cells/Neutrophils (We want this to be above 2.5/3.5), Fourth row = Platelets (We want this to be above 10). There was a huge jump in my numbers the last 5 days!

What’s next? I have an appointment with my oncologist next week to discuss next steps. It will likely consist of radiation – which I hear is a BREEZE compared to chemotherapy. And I’ve had the worst of the worst of chemotherapy. So psh…it’ll be a piece of cake 🙂 Bring it. I’m ready. Let’s go. I will be sure to keep you all posted!
