Onc visit yesterday went very well.  Didn't get the report for I've lost interest in the details for the time being.  All numbers approaching normal and no infusion requirements.  Yea!!  We discussed my lightheadness and it's due to neuropathy of the nerves that cause blood vessel contraction ie the blood doesn't get pumped around fast enough.  Said it would improve with time.

He wan't to go two weeks without infusions before he'll consider taking the hickman out.  I'm so looking forward to that.

Was at the clinic at 7:30 am to get my line tpa'ed.  Then a 2 hour wait for the tpa to work and get the blood drawn, which gave me time to eat breakfast at the Bistro and take my meds.

Asked if I'd ever get to me O. Press and my onc will be going on vacation soon and Press may be taking his patients.  The doc's rotate monthly on the transplant service so I've been attended by several.  Wish I could remember their names ;-).

Anyway, was back to the apartment by 12:30 and had to take a nap.  My energy level is no where near normal and it's hard to be patient.

Hope all is well with you.  dj
