Stem Cell Collection Phase DONE!

Well the stem cell collection phase is done, not completely sure but I believe I hit 7 million. The 8 million goal was optimum I think. So no more neupogen shots in the belly and no more bone pain. Scalp hurts now and hair is beginning to fall out. Not to worry, I have cute hats lined up.
Today I had to have my central port changed to something smaller. Problem was the nurse had to attempt it 3 times with 3 different catheters. Not fun but not quite as painful I thought it was going to be. She said my collar bone was hard to get past due to its size. So who knew I had a giant collar bone? At any rate, the new port will be more comfortable because of its smaller size and flexibility.
Oh well, nothing scheduled for tomorrow so I’m off for Turkey Day. My sister Janine is coming tomorrow and all will be well!

It’s really November 23rd. I still need to work on the timezone settings.
