After humping 3 bags to the car early this morning, we loaded and had a lovely drive to Omaha. There was snow on the ground that made the travel of deer show up although we only saw one that was on his feet. I was very apprehensive about this trip, in case you hadn't noticed but was able to walk, although somewhat slowly from the garage, to the elevators, to the clinic and back to an office.
Dr. Lunning is wonderful, there are just no words, I'm getting a second dose of Methotrexate that I received last time plus a new pill chemo, Revilid each day for 2 weeks.But I won't have to stay the two weeks, YAY YAY!!!!! Only until the Methotrexate is out of my system 3-6 days. I tolerated it well but this is an experiment putting the two together. The Revilid will cross the blood brain barrier and go down my spinal column that showed lymphoma cells were hanging onto the 'hairs' along the spine.
The Methotrexate will hopefully continue to clear up any rogue cells that are still lingering and keep them from going forth and pro-creating more of the little bastards. I shouldn't have much or any side effects. I will get physical therapy to improve my walking and I plan on doing a lot of walking.
We are unpacked and waiting for dinner to come, you know you gotta eat! My mood is SO MUCH BETTER knowing I will be just a few days. Maybe the nightmares won't come. I brought the laptop computer and it latched right onto the WIFI so possibly my tablet just didn't have the OOMPH. But it is loaded with books so that comes in handy.
Rosanne, I found another walking book, Wild by Cheryl Strayed, she takes off on the Pacific Coast Trail going up through CA and north, even mentions Burney Falls. I'm not sure about the book yet but if you read it you will get an idea of what I packed to bring down here!
I'm ready to go home now!
