I actually got out yesterday but my internet wasnt working. My nausea is much better than last time but I dont really have an appetite though since I got out, since im not getting all those IV meds but this high-dose nupegen is really bothering me. The bone pain. I have Dilaudid 2 mg and a Pain patch and I still cant get any relief. And also since they are making my white count really high im having fevers. I have to get 2 shots a day until my ANC reaches 10 and then they are going to start the stemcell collection. Hopefully by next weds. They said that takes 4-6 hours a day for about a week on average and then I get a week to recover and then I will get my high-dose treatment. My doctor said I will probably end up in the ICU for that so I am nervous but I just want to get it over with. Im really hoping I will be well by halloween. Its my favorite holiday and I haven't been able to celebrate it in years.

Being able to celebrating Halloween is a good goal. Sending good thoughts and prayers your way that your pain is kept under control, along with the other side effects, as you progress with your treatment.
