I know it's been awhile since I've updated you, so here goes.
Today is day 73 of being away from home, as I spent 4 weeks in Stanford Hospital, and then checked into a local Airbnb nearby for the remaining time. (I MISS HOME!) Thank you to everyone who brought a meal to the house for us! The girls and Jeff brought them out to the Airbnb, and we've had many awesome dinners! 😘 (and there are still some in the freezer at home!)
Today is day 65 post bone marrow transplant. It's been an up and down ride feeling fatigued, yet unable to sleep, suffering from nausea and vomiting, and numerous skin rashes. They say it's all part of the process of my body accepting the donor cells. Day 90 is the day they mark as release day - sending me home away from the comfort of the cancer clinic I visit 2 to 3 times a week. Good news is that I get to go home on day 79! They are encouraged by my recovery and will be doing the post-treatment bone marrow biopsy on August 3. Praying for🙏 no more cancer cells! I'll have my follow up appointment and results on August 10th.
I'll continue to be on immune suppressant drugs and other drugs designed to help me stay healthy. They expect recovery to take up to a year. Due to Covid, I'll still be housebound, but at least it'll be mine!
Thank you for all your prayers and words of encouragement. I feel them in my heart especially when I'm having a super tough day.
I'll let you know when I'm cancer free! 😍
