Today is the last day of the Giving Thanks Challenge and I'm playing catch up again.  Reid had doctor appointments that took up a big portion of both days and with Keith here I just didn't have time last night to post. 

I'm thankful that yesterday Reid's appointment with the cardiologist went well.  His cholesterol was down to 150, but the doctor put him on Lipitor because he wants it down to 100.  This is because there might be problems later on with the coronary arteries from the radiation and he doesn't need any additional complications caused by high cholesterol.

Today I'm thankful that Reid saw the Oncologist and Plan B is finally getting underway.  This is the prelude to the stem cell transplant.  The plan is to admit him to the hospital on Thursday if there's a bed available.  If not, it will probably be the next day.  He'll be hospitalized for three days and then home for two weeks, back for three days, etc.  This chemotherapy is given as a slow drip, so it can't be done on an outpatient basis. 

I'm also thankful that the Social Security hearing went well today and he's been approved for disability income.

This is the last day of this year's Giving Thanks Challenge.  Thank you Leah at South Breeze Farm for sponsoring this meaningful event.
