Always something new

Just got back home from City of Hope all my numbers are good my only problem is I have a rash that is now all over my body. At first the nurse practitioner thought it was due to the antibiotic I was taking so Monday she changed the medicine. But today she had the Dr. look at it and it is Donner vs Host a form of rejection. The Dr gave me two oppositions to be put in the hospital or the go home and try the medicine and come back tomorrow. I am home. I am also on 60 mg. of steroid today and tomorrow. He will check to make sure it is working at 11am tomorrow. I am praying that it works!!! Other than that I am doing well and enjoying the time before Christmas. Made cookies with the grand kids yesterday what fun. We are having dinner at James house tomorrow and at my house on Christmas ( Joel cooking under my direction).
I Wish All a every Blessed Christmas.

Good news

Thursday 12/17 was city of hope day and what a day. The STR (DNA) test came back and I am fully graphed which means I now have someone else DNA and Blood type. Spooky. My M spike the test for cancer in the blood is at 0 and all my other counts are great. I did manage to get a cold/flu I asked how as I have been no where and seen no one. Dr. said its in the air and it's not that unusual so am on timiflu and an antibiotic seems to be working as it is almost gone. I go in tomorrow for a 6 hours infusion to help my immune system so this doesn't happen again. Good idea long day. All in all this is a wonderful Christmas.
Have a great Christmas

I got to come home Thursday night. I now know what heaven is like. It is my recliner and my bed. After 50 days it was so good to be home. I am being very careful to follow all the rules and you know how hard that is for me but this time I know my life depends on it. Will write soon now I am going back to my recliner and rest.

Home soon

Hi from the village,
Yesterdays doctors visit was very good. Numbers are doing good and I am getting stronger each day. Now for the news the doctor said if I keep improving I will get to go home next Friday and just come to the hospital on Mondays and Thursdays. We thought we were here for 60 more days so this is big. I will still need someone with me 24 - 7 but it will be a lot easier at home. I just had to share that with you.
Thank You for all the prayer and caring
Love Pat
