Monday, Monday

Monday, Monday can’t trust that day. Monday, Monday sometimes it just turns out that way. (Love the Mamas & Papas) So today was lab day and again – NO PLATELETS (the part of the blood that plugs a hole). My neutrophils (infection fighters) are coming up slow but sure so that was a positive. Spent a couple of hours in day hospital getting another unit of Platelets. They have ordered HLA platelets for me but, those won’t be available until the end of the week. What HLA(human leukocyte antigen) means that someone else matches by antibodies in my blood therefore my body will not reject them. I must be high maintenance lol. Still waiting to hear from Barnes on a definite date. I’m ready to get this behind me and move forward. Did I mention that I have to have all of my childhood immunizations again once this transplant is over? Ya…….go figure! I was really hoping to get back to work by the end of the year but, that’s not a possibility with the immunization issue. Dr. Chaudhary (Pedi Infectious Disease Doc) told me today to focus on one thing at a time, like getting this transplant first lol. He knows how impatient I am. So, I guess I will have to pick up a hobby or something because, I will be stir crazy. Chicken says I need to learn to crochet………..A NO! Pinterest here I come. Hope you all had a good Monday and your week has started off on the right foot! Keep the Faith!
