Tomorrow he has another bone marrow aspiration. On the 4th is the Stem Cell Pre-Amission class and on the 7th there are labs, an echocardiogram and a pulmonary function test. On the 8th he'll have the PET scans again and a visit with the Social Worker. On the 9th he has an appointment for HT/WT storage consent (I'm not sure what this is because we thought he had already signed something before they harvested the stem cells), another visit with the stem cell doctor, and a clinic visit with the research coordinator. On the 11th he goes in for an injection and we were told he would have those for three days. That brings us to the 13th when he's admitted for three weeks.
We were told to start looking for a place to live down near the Medical Center for when he's released. I've got a list to work off of and they said to get something lined up soon. Even if he was released from the hospital early we should be able to change the dates. Places down near the Medical Center are used to being flexible I guess.
I called today to get a hair cut. I thought I'd better do it now before things get any busier. And they're saying we might even get snow later this week. Of course, that excites us because it's a rare occurrence in these parts. The temperature has been dropping since early this morning and I heard a little while ago that it might even get down in the 20's in Galveston! I dragged some of my tropical plants into the garage and covered the others with sheets. I hope I don't lose any. It's never gotten that cold in the 20 years we've lived here. We'll let the water drip tonight so we hopefully we won't have frozen pipes in the morning. Homes here are not insulated the way they are up north.
I can't believe all the snow I'm seeing on the news. Such pretty scenes, but that's easy for me to say since I don't live there. I'd just love to grab my sleigh one more time and go down a hill before I'm too old.
Some years back on a Ginny Doll list we set our dolls up in scenes reminiscent of past events in our lives. Here's one of my dolls looking like me back in 1954.
Stay warm everyone!
