Chemo Round 3 Day 31

I went to my appointment in St. Louis today. They examined me and asked about my recent stay at Memorial. They arranged for me to see one of their infectious disease doctors this Friday. They believe I will probably have to postpone my transplant till the infections clear up. They would like their doctor to confirm how long I need to be on antibiotics before resetting the transplant date. They do not believe it will be a problem asking the donor to delay a week or two.

We also went on a tour of the transplant unit. We did not get to see an actual room as they were all full. We did find out that Teresa can actually stay in my room. They have laundry facilities for her right on the floor. There is a refrigerator in each room to use also. The floor has a pantry room which has a fridge, a toaster and a microwave to use. Then they also have drinks, crackers peanut butter, jelly, oatmeal, soup, ice cream, fruit cups etc. for the patients and their families. There I will be able to walk the halls as I did at Memorial or I can use an exercise room that they have on the floor. Over all what we saw looked very nice.

I took my second dose of antibiotics at home tonight and all went well. Teresa hooked me up and did a good job.

My labs today were OK except my potassium was low at 2.7 so they asked me to increase my dose. I will be seeing Dr. Lanzotti tomorrow afternoon and they will be rechecking my labs.

God continues with His plan and unveils it a little at a time. Tomorrow I will find out some more and Friday I will find even more. I will let you know what I find out as it is revealed. May God bless you as He blesses me!
