Home for the Day

Filed under: — brendan @ 21:34 GMT

Even though my numbers are dropping (white cells and neutrophils went from 2.4-2.6 each yesterday down to 0.8 this morning), my doctor said it’d be okay if I went home just during the day today, and return to the hospital tonight.

Okay by me!  It was a really wonderful day; lunch and dinner at home (thanks to E for real treats), and nice chats with a few friends on our neighborhood road.  And plenty of chances to enjoy the company of both Elana and our boys.   Without much of a beard now, it’s easier for more of me to glow.

My counts will keep going down over the next 2 or 3 days (my estimates may well be far off from the real versions), meaning my energy levels will decrease a bit more and my immune system will be more vulnerable to infection.  So this was my window of opportunity for at least the next week or so, I expect.   This, in particular, made it all the more worth doing.  I’m lucky I was able to; we had set ourselves up to accept either possibility.

One of the two night nurses just came in to give me my daily shot, shortly after I got my evening meds in the requisite little plastic cup.  I’m still in the routine, I know, but I’m there with clear images from a really nice break, however brief it may have been.

Some people may not get health insurance so they have choice to pay for the really expensive prescription drugs or research how to buy generic medications online. Generic drugs are as safe as other branded meds. Only reputable pharmacy produces them such as Sunrise remedies. Having this in head one can buy propecia uk in generic online drugstore including free shipping anywhere in the world
