Day -7

26 Jun

This is medically what they title today, day -7. The day of transplant they call day 0. From there we graduate to + days. My 5th bag of chemo is being hung. One difference between my experience here and Akron General is that they keep me hooked up constantly to fluids, which means I never lose Luci (my pole). We will become good friends. I have felt good today. I have had my normal chemo headache, which has happened every start day of chemo. I hope to sleep better tonight and wake up without it tomorrow. I walked a lot today, and enjoyed time with Adam this morning, and mom this afternoon. The day feels entirely too long. Why is it time creeps by when you want it to speed by, and yet as a whole time keeps slipping away all too fast.

I am thankful the girls were distracted by great friends and the zoo. I don’t think they hardly noticed I was gone. Face-time is a wonderful thing for us.

    Allie,
    Your sweeties look so cute in their matching dresses! Praying that everything goes according to plans-the chemo does it’s job without a lot of bad side effects and that you will be ready for the transplant. I know that our Lord is holding you in the palm of His hand.

    I’m so glad to read you had a good day today and I LOVE the picture of the girls in their matching outfits. Brings back memories of my childhood when I was dressed in a matching outfit with my 3 siblings.

    Thinking of you often and praying always,
