Last day at the clinic for now!

I got there early to dump some more stem cells and the nurses told me not to say much to the other patients because they didn't collect as much as I did. I said 3,300,000 is really a lot? They told me I dumped off 33,000,000!!!!! Holy cow I said. I just about dropped to my knees. That was really GREAT news especially when it comes to putting them back into my system. So, they got about a 1/2 bag today and my potassium level was still low so they gave me four more bags. I do have clearance to go home but still waiting for my car to get fixed. The part should be in soon I was told. I'm hopeful to get on the road tomorrow no later than 12:00.

No more antibiotics, Neupogen. Feeling pretty good.

I'm glad you were able to come home!! I take it Keith has your jetta and you are driving Keith's car? It is so good to hear that you are doing so well. I continue to pray for you and yours. I have been busy with school (yuck), work, work and more work as well as the kids. I took an extra day off this week to catch up on my rest and spend quality time with the kids. Although, Ms. sociable had a sleep over Monday and didn't come home until later that afternoon. Steven and I did spend quality time together. He is becoming such a grown up~ almost 14!! Well, I better get back to work. I hope to talk to you soon.
