When we moved to Alaska, we had to have engine block and oil pan heaters installed in the cars due to the extreme cold. The devices were attached to a single short cord that emerged from the front grille, and we kept extension cords in the car so we could plug in wherever we parked. It took us awhile and a few broken cords to remember to unplug the car before driving away. I’m reminded of that today with what my nurse, Molly, calls my new best friend, aka my patient pal IV walker. I have to remember to take it with me wherever I go, first unplugging it from the wall. I’ve had a few close calls but so far no broken lines.
It’s been a happily uneventful day, settling in and getting myself organized. Michael and I spent some quality time with each other and our iPads despite the alien setting. I got my first dose of busulfan without any problem. I’ll have the full dose tomorrow evening along with the fludarabine.
I posted a few photos of the room and view. The room is decent sized, and I like having a view of the Key Bridge in the distance and the ongoing construction next door. Michael suggested I take daily progress photos, and we’ll see who gets done first – me or the building. Place your bets on me, please!
