Well, after getting to go home for ten days, I am now back in the hospital for my second round of treatment. I am actually getting chemo right this very second. Which is kind of a bummer because I was really starting to feel good again. But oh well, that's the name of the game. Good news though! Not only were my counts really good by the end of my time at home, but the LP results showed that there are no cancer cells in my spinal fluid, and as far as they could see, none in my bone marrow either. This means that I am responding well to treatments, not that I can go home early (yes I did ask if I could just go home) haha but I am really excited that things are looking good.
Today after I woke up from the spinAl tap and bone marrow aspiration, they threw me in a wheel chair and had my parents take me to my room. Now usually a nurse will come to take me back up, so we can go the back way, in the service elevators. But since no nurse came we got to go through the main entrance area, with lots of people around. Now to give you a good picture of what it was like, you have to know what I looked like. They had wrapped a blanket around me becAuse I was freezing cold, I was wearing my hat with ear flaps (my traditional favorite), and a mask. Also, I was very groggy and still trying to wake up. So it looked like they were wheeling a drunk storm trooper in a cocoon through the hospital. Yes, people were staring. I probably would have too. And to top it off, we waited what seemed like forever for an elevator. While poor little kids asked their mommies what I was. Haha ok i am exagerating, but I did get a lot of looks. And then the elevator came, and the doors were closing, so I stuck my foot out to stop the doors, but it didn't exactly work. So everyone wAtched as I got my leg stuck in the door, but the doors did open. So that is my adventurous day for you, I am back in my sanctum, and would love to see anyone that can come visit :P thank you all so much for everything, I couldn't do this without you.
