It is the much anticipated day 100!!! Now that it's here I'm not really sure what the big deal is other than I had to have a bone marrow biopsy which wasn't bad at all. My favorite PA did it - she uses tons of lidocaine so the spot on my back will be numb all day. My magnesium was low this morning but not too low considering I have not had an infusion since last Thursday. The PA (and I) were very happy with that. He said that in the "real world" they wouldn't infuse someone with magnesium until they reached 1.0/1.1 so a mag level of 1.5 really isn't that bad (1.8 is normal). They are planning on "graduating" me from clinic on Thursday. I will then see Dr. Rizzieri (transplant doctor) once a week for a few weeks then less and less. I will also start going back to Dr. Moore (oncologist/hematologist) for check-ups.
Health wise I am doing great but basically being quarantined to the apartment is getting quite old. I would really like to go out to dinner! With the H1N1 flu threat they are telling us to be very very careful. Also, since some have asked, my toe is fine now - it was just an infection in the skin around that spot :)
Hope you have a good week,
PS - If anyone has any medical questions or is confused about something I have written about just let me know and I'll try to clear it up - bone marrow transplant really is a neat process that a lot of people have misconceptions about (thanks to TV and movies).
