Back to KP for consolidation

4/2/2019

My oncologist called yesterday to let me know things are lining up at Stanford. He used to work with my Stanford oncologist so there is already a good relationship between them. He also told me that I need to go back to the hospital for consolidation chemo in a day or two. Today we received confirmation that I’ll have a room Wednesday and they want me there by 8:30 AM so I’m there before rounds.

First the bad

  1. Last Friday, we got home from Stanford at 11:00 PM, exhausted in every way.
  2. I don’t get two weeks break at home between chemo cycles, I’ll take the 1 week!
  3. A third bad thing but who focuses on the bad things, I just need 3 of these

Now the good!

  1. The sooner I start consolidation chemo, the sooner I’m ready for the bone marrow transplant, theoretically…
  2. I should only be in the hospital for ~4 days if I don’t get an infection or such
  3. I’ll be able to recover at home with 2-3 trips/week back to Roseville, ~2 to 5 hours depending on if I need just a blood draw or an infusion…
