It's Thursday morning, our third day in Seattle. I am so excited to be here, I've met with two of the doctors and I really like them. Not that liking them really matters, but it's nice to have doctors that you look forward to seeing.
Traveling here wasn't the easiest! We were supposed to leave Omaha at 12:40pm and arrive in Seattle at 5:35pm. We got to the airport early, got through security and was happily waiting at our gate when Jeff noticed the flight we were taking was not even listed on the "departure" board. We soon find out that due to mechanical reasons, our plane had been grounded. After several itinerary changes we were booked on a sold out flight to Phoenix hoping for the best. We made it to Seattle but our luggage didn't.
The first two days of appointments went well, I just feel that I am in the right hands. Every organ in my body will be checked prior to transplant. Although I am one of those people that "just really don't want to know", it is comforting to know that I am probably having one of best physicals I've ever had!
Today are a couple of biggies! I am having a bone marrow biopsy to make sure my cancer is still in remission. I will also have a lumbar puncture (spinal tap) to ensure that I do not have cancer cells in my spine. I will also get a skin biopsy. That is because I agreed to participate in MANY studies and one requires a skin biopsy. I'm glad to do it!! I am in Seattle today because of people participating in studies!!
Thank you for all of your prayers!! They are working! I feel strong and have peace of mind. Please continue to remember us in your prayers.
God bless you!
