I checked into the bone marrow wing yesterday morning. It's exciting to finally be here. The rooms are actually a little bigger than the rooms on the "chemo wing" that I was on. They're also more "updated" as far as decorations/medical equipment etc. It's nice to be in a different type of room - any change of scenery helps. They also have a small "gym" on this unit with a treadmill, bike, and weights so I'm trying to continue my walking - although I'm sure I won't feel like doing it in a few days. However the physical therapist is here to work with me and keep me moving (Katie you should be proud). I had some trouble getting to sleep last night - it could be a result of the steroids I am on to help with nausea or just being in a new place. Either way hopefully it will get better.
I had my first chemo treatment yesterday about 4 and it ran for 2 hours. I will get my second one sometime today and *hopefully* this will be my last chemo treatment for at least a very long time. I start radiation tomorrow at 8:00 (which means they pick me up from my room at 7:30) and then I will have another "fraction" (that is what they call a treatment) around 4:00 tomorrow as well.
Thanks for all the cards, prayers, good wishes, etc. that you all are sending my way. While I was home I loved going to the mailbox each day - it definitely brightened my day. Hope you all have a good first week of June (I can't believe it's already almost June), Amy
