2B: Days 9 & 10

Yesterday Ryan went to Prime and Mom went with me outpatient.  It was a “lab and wait” appointment and my labs were all still low.  They still decided to give me the chemo anyway without any sort of blood product.  I think we got home around 2 and I took a nap.  We got some pizza from Garbos for dinner, I was really craving their house salad.  I got sick when we got home with the food so I ended up eating just a few bites.   Really a pretty uneventful day.  I was hoping that I would be feeling good and that Mom & I could do something fun with the day to ourselves, but instead I spent most of the free time in bed or on the couch.

This morning I had to be at outpatient at 10AM while Mom stayed at home with Ryan.    I had to wait a little bit for my orders so I didn’t get out of there until a little after 1.  I was feeling pretty good when I got home so when Ryan woke up from his nap, we went to the park.   I tired out pretty quick so we just went down the slides a handful of times and headed back to the house for Ryan & I to take an afternoon nap.

Since it’s Cinco de Mayo, we had tacos for dinner.  We had a Relay for Life meeting and Mom agreed to stay home with Ryan so John & I could both go.  Afterwards we went to the Sertoma event at Qdoba: a tent set up outside with a band and margaritas.  By the time we got there the margaritas were gone so John and our friends Heather, Tom and Wessler had to settle for beer.  I don’t think they were too disappointed.  It was fun, but I think I’m getting old.  We sat in the back of the tent and I still thought the music was way too loud.  🙂

PS-  Got the results of my last bone marrow and I’m still in remission!  Gotta keep trucking with the chemo to keep the bad cells from coming back until I can get the transplant, but that’s still wonderful news.  Woo hoo!
