Last Friday I went in to try and get another transfusion of 2 units of blood. Well the nurses there doped me up with all kinds of meds to avoid allergic reactions which just knocked me out; BUT I was able to get the 2 units. They helped some, but I think I needed all 4 units because I still have trouble taking deep breathes these days (something to talk with the docs about).
I’m trying something adventurous this week. I am in Montreal to meet with a grantee and do some analysis. The adventurous part is all the travel that was involved. Oy, I could remember when a simple plane trip was just a blip on my radar screen. Yesterday, by the time we got to the hotel, I was so tired, I ended up napping for an hour. Good thing I’m only here until Friday. I miss the family.
The nausea seems to be under control at the moment and despite a less than restful nights sleep, I’m ready to get to work. The only challenge is that my grantee is in another hotel and we are having some challenges connecting to make a plan for the work we want to do.
So I apologize for not updating sooner. In general things are going well. I am still suffering from nausea pretty regularly, but the meds that I have help to battle that.
Just as an FYI, it is likely I will not update the blog next week as I will be spending time with the family while the kids are on spring break. Hopefully there will not be anything to tell you about, anyhow. My next appointment with the docs is April 12th, so hopefully I’ll have something to report after that meeting.
Until next time.
