Settling In

I had a reasonable night's sleep , though it took me a bit longer than usual to get off and I was awake early.

I saw the main BMT doctor last night while mom and dad were visting and she went through the treatment protocol with me. I won't go into all the details now but basically I'll be having a drug called Campath for four hours a day for the next seven days with another couple of drugs towards the end which are also only over short periods of time. This means I'll only be tethered to Ivy for part of each day for the next week, so I'll be more easily mobile and I can have a shower in the morning.

As well as the chemo drugs through Ivy, I've started on a range of tablets to either help with the side effects of those or stop me getting infections. Most of these I've had before but there are a couple of new ones

The regulars are:-

Allopurinol to prevent gout
Ranitidine to prevent acid reflux (indigestion)
Fluconazole to protect against fungal infections
Chlorhexidine Gluconate mouthwash to protect against bacteria

The two new ones are:-

Aciclovir an anti-viral drug
Metoclopramide an anti-sickness drug.

Thanks to the good offices of my friend Andy I sent the pics of the room to him from my phone over MMS and he emailed them to my gmail account, so here is my room:-

Click the pics to embiggen them (slightly).

I've just noticed you must have about 10 plugs by your bedside.

I would think that's about the right number needed for your gadgets.

(and I'm aware that this is like the pot calling the kettle black!).
