Let’s Continue!

I am going to my oncologists office in a couple of hours. Will find out how my blood values are doing. Specifically, how my red blood cell count and platelet count is doing. I anticipate both rising enough to start another round of chemo today. 

I am also supposed to try yet again to speak with transplant peeps today. I have to say, this will be something like my 3rd or 4th communication on the topic of transplant and I am basically lost. Seems with each progressing phone call, I hear the statement “there must have been a misunderstanding.” I guess chemo brain is getting to me some and I’m having trouble understanding what they want me to understand, whatever that is.

I’m going to make it simple today for them. Give me a step #1. Then a step #2, and so forth. If they can’t give me that, then I don’t know how to proceed any further at this point with the stem cell transplant process. The insurance is convoluted, communication is sketchy, and I’m not feeling my best to be honest. If they can’t boil it down to a 1,2,3 process, how can I in the midst of all this medical confusion?

I’ll post more details in the next day or two as I find out what is happening next. Thank you all for your prayers and kindness. My family!
