Had my second visit with Dr. D today. Everything is perfect from a transplant standpoint. The infection should be gone. I took my last IV this morning and she removed the picc line so I no longer have a string hanging out of my arm.
She said I have no restrictions physically or in my diet. Life is back to normal. I go see Dr. J next week (although I am not sure why) and then we find out at 100 days if this stem cell transplant actually worked.
Now I am going to try to book a quick ski trip up to Vermont or Lake Placid with Helene and the kids for the long President’s Day weekend.
So… What’s the bad news?
My car died at Hackensack this afternoon. Could not start it in the parking lot. I called Mercedes roadside assistance who came to jump start me but when we opened the hood the belt was shredded. They offered to tow me to the nearest dealership but I needed to get the car back to Westfield where I get it serviced because they just replaced that belt! So I called AAA for a tow back to Westfield and 3 hours later I just walked in the door!
Well … at least I have my health! Oh – and a great dinner delivered by the RIchters of Sole, Rice Pilaf, Broccoli and String Beans AND a UPS delivery of Lou Malnati’s pizza from Chicago and my old friend Wintz! Screw the car…life is GOOD.
