Ok, I'm feeling better. We spent the whole day at cedars yesterday. Blood work, xrays, pulminary test, echo, ekg.....all tests necessary to get insurance approval for harvesting my stem cells. We're aiming for the week of Dec 19. It will take 3-5 days, done as outpatient. With the holidays, my chemo schedule is getting messed up, so now is the time to do it. I hate the thought of missing chemo, but Phan says it should be ok and we'll keep a close eye on my numbers.
Monday I have an appointment with my boss and H.R. I definitely need some answers about my time off, so I can do some planning. It's crazy that they make it such a mystery.
Today, going on a short bike ride with matt arms. I've been riding the stationary bike a bit, so the real thing should be ok.
