Day – 3: Dec. 25

Day – 3, Dec. 25

First day of Melphalan along with Gemzar. You have to be chewing ice for about 3.5 hours with Melphalan before, during and after to hopefully prevent mucositis. I was kinda shaky after this treatment but later that day made a comeback. My sister and I went for a good walk today. I have another day of that chemo tomorrow and then a day of rest. The following day I will get my stem cells back and begin the recovery period of ..2 weeks to a month.

This hospital is great. A free lunch was provided, prime rib dinner. Nice! Then some volunteers for MD gave me a stuffed bear, a pillow, and a newspaper.

My sister had a free turkey dinner too. I think I’m going to turn in early to prepare for tomorrow.

All is still going well!! Got fingers and toes crossed!
