The holding pattern

Holding Pattern

So I haven’t posted in a few days…and mainly it’s because I’m going a little stir crazy in here. Nothing major to report, really. But, I figured I’d update everyone. Projected Release Date: The beginning prediction was anywhere from Wednesday the 27th, to Wednesday July 4th. That’s still in play, but now I have 2 […]

There Will Be Blood

So while I sit here, waiting for my numbers to return, my platelet count is just nose diving. I get transfusions regularly, but apparently, they haven’t been super clear with some of the potential side effects. Most of them are pretty obvious and readily apparently. For instance – you clot ridiculously slowly. I pulled a […]

Let Them Learn….maybe?

An interesting thing happened today. First, I learned that my math skills are rusty. From the beginning, the doctors told me I’d get another bone marrow biopsy on Day 14. Sure, fine, no problem. I thought Day 14 would fall exactly 2 weeks from the start of treatment. I started treatment on Thursday, June 7th. […]

Stupid Things I Miss

I’ve always been kind of an all-or-nothing kind of person. Hospital stays are apparently no exception. Before June 4th, when I was admitted to NY Presbyterian, I had exactly 2 visits to a hospital, both lasting less than an hour, both to get X-Rays to double check that my bronchitis hadn’t turned to┬ápneumonia. You know […]
