The last few days have been pretty uneventful. Every day is rough, but tolerable. All the same stuff from my last post(s) apply. We're smack dab in the waiting game.... the only question is: when will my counts start to come up?
Today is the first possible day the docs thought there'd be even the slightest chance -- their money is on Day +14 to Day +17, but I'm holding out that it will be today to tomorrow. I do feel a little more energy than I did yesterday morning... maybe that's a good sign. The results should be in actually, so let's take a peek.
Well whaddya know! WBC at 0.3, that's not up much but it's up! Wow. So that means I may be able to get out of here by Thursday or Friday. Of course, that presents other possible problems as their may have been some COVID exposure in my house. Everyone's getting tested today, so we'll know the results by the time I'm ready to get out of here. Not sure what we'll do if anyone tests positive, but we'll cross that bridge when we get to it.
What else? Heather was able to visit on Christmas even and brought a "just add water" Hot and Sour Soup and a frozen Shu Mai thing from Trader Joe's. Not bad for a make-shift, neutropenic Chinese food Christmas Eve. Thanks, boo.
She also got me the best Christmas present ever. A stuffed version of Katniss. I call her "KITH" -- pronounced /KIT eh/ -- or "Katniss in the Hospital."
Thanks also to Sameena -- who's husband is battling AML too -- for sending the nice card and Christmas pop-tarts. What a perfect present.
Gonna wrap this up for now so I can do some laps and ride the bike a little. Will keep y'all posted on likely discharge date as well as COVID sitch. Fun times!! Oh, and FLY EAGLES FLY!
