Rainy Wednesday

The storm door is open and the rain /snow is here. We had some rain yesterday but more is slated for today and the next week almost. My daughter is going to stay in Truckee for a night or two due to the snow. It’s just not worth her driving for 3 hours just to turn around the next morning and so the same.  The snow starts tonight and will continue so she can just stay at a hotel.

The BMB went very well and I have to say I am completely impressed with Sutter’s services. The procedure went very fast and we even stopped for soup at our local cafe and were home by 12:30. Now we just have to wait for the bad news. Yes, I know that’s pessimistic but I don’t think with all the low counts that’s it’s going to be positive. But we will move forward. We haven’t heard from the specialists yet so if not by Friday, I’ll have B call.

Today is a gym day since yesterday was busy with the doctor appt.

I have some butternut squash baking and I’m going to make a puree for soup. I’m planning to freeze it and then make soup this weekend.

BMB or for those of you who don’t have cancer… The details…

So, it started off ok. Got to the hospital on time, checked in on time and then it was APITA, or pain in the ass. Waiting , waiting. My 10 o’clock time came and went . On top
Of it no water, no food, God, no coffee… The worst was the nurses, although nice seemed very confused. They kept saying we need the protocols for a bone marrow biopsy … I’m not sure what they needed if they’ve done this a zillion times. I was not happy an let them know. I felt Mercy San Juan in Sacramento was a joke. Very Untogether. So, two plus hours later.. But when I got in to the ct room with the radiologist doing the procedure it was fine. They use a new tool that’s like a drill. I went under, it was done and now I’m just a little sore. It’ll take 3-5 days to find out how many plasma cells are in the marrow. It’s probably a little barbaric to get drilled in your hip, but whatca gonna do.

The first thing I made my husband do is stop at Starbucks for coffee !

Hopefully it’ll be ok, I’m planning to go to work tomorrow, not really do any lifting but I can check patrons out.
I see how I wake up.

Sniffles…

Well, I finally caught something from either the library or someone brought germs in the house. I’m sniffly and sinusey. Not terrible but still … I’m taking lemon water, sinus stuff and some Chinese herbs. Otherwise I’ll let it run its course. No fever so, I’m ok there. With my BMB on Friday im hoping I’ll be better. I don’t think getting my hip drilled will make a lot of difference to my sinuses but I’d prefer if I’m not too under the weather. Speaking of weather the same day ( Friday) were in for rain and wind. Oh joy that will help my stress levels. 😬

Well, it’s pay day, and I’m off to get cash for groceries and fill up my van. I saw gas at 2.07 yesterday so that’ll help. I need some groceries but my head feels 10 times bigger than it is so I’ll wait.
