Thursday Medical Update

Today's neutrophil count: 0.6. Hooray. That's enough for me to go out in public. Actually, I went out in public yesterday. We finally left the hospital about 3:00 and Mike took me to Rosie's Cantina. I had a shrimp quesadilla and premium margarita. Boy were they good!

So I saw my doc in his office this morning. He called the Sarah Cannon Institute while I was there. My appointment is with the head of the transplant department at 11:00 on Monday morning. That's good, cause I can have the whole weekend to make my list of questions. Also, they told me to come prepared to stay overnight in case they need to go ahead and do some tests then. They're going to fax me all the paperwork this afternoon, so I will have it ready when I arrive.

One side effect from being in the hospital that I wasn't expecting. The hospital windows all have dark coating on them. My windows at home are not coated. And our bed is right by a window wall that has no coverings. It's really bright in here. I think I'm going to have to wear my shades for a bit. Weird.
