Loved meeting up with dear friends Patty and Dennis at the cancer center who went through a stem cell transplant the same time I did. Dennis is doing quite well, especially considering he's in his 70's and has had cancer 3 times himself. It was so nice to see them and know his scans came through clean.
Speaking of scans... I went in for a PET/CT scan yesterday and will be doing Cat scans next Wednesday. As well as appointments on Monday, phone call from doc on Tuesday regarding PET/CT results (hint: I looked at the images already on CD, but I'm waiting for the official word of the doc to get excited :), and about 6 tests and an appointment on Wednesday for my transplant work up. That's right, looks like we're moving forward!! BUT, I of course won't know more until the appointment on Thursday. Awesome. Have I said before I hate not being able to plan ahead???
As far as how I'm feeling right now I'm doing quite well. HyperCVAD wasn't too rough this time around, though I had the rough three days coming home from the hospital followed by some just dreary days, but not bad ones. I'm so grateful for the incredible amount of help I've had with sitters and food brought in, I think it's really helped with recuperation this time around. I have the usual mind fuzziness from chemo, bone pain from Neupogen shots, sleeplessness and weight gain from steroids, and neuropathy from the Vincristine but all in all things are going well!
