Hospital Week #1
Old 11-10-2019, 10:58 AM
  #1

I am here for ~26 days, this is day #7 & I am bored out of my mind! I have had about 6/12 doses of radiation and the last 6 will be this week; I had something called Thymo; and that's it. I'm tired today but not sure how much of it is because I slept lousy last night...Overall, nothing too exciting until Thurs., then I get the donor cells. Then it's just time for them to attach to me and hopefully, I pray, not get sick and get good numbers so I can go home! (I"m ready already!)
Thanks for everyone's support, I'll write again next week if i can


PS for those who say binge on netflix/amazon the WIFI sucks, so if you know how to improve it, please let me know

Sorry the WIFI sucks.

Use a hotspot if you can and download what you want to watch. Or have someone take your device out somewhere with a good connection and download for you.
Best of luck with all of the treatments!

A hot spot should help - praying you don't get sick and that your numbers are good. Hang in there - you are on your way! Wishing you the best!

Thinking of you and hoping you get good numbers so you can get back home sooner rather than later.

I agree about the hot spot.

Long hospital stays are awful! The time seems to tick very slowly.

Can someone download shows/movies, etc and then bring device back to you? Then you don't have to rely on internet.

Hope things go well for you!!!

It's good to hear from you. Hopefully the staff aren't checking on you throughout the night and are letting you get the rest you need to recover more quickly.

Id turn off the wifi and use your own data. If you have to call and increase your plan for the month it may be worth it under the circumstances.

Glad youre doing well.

You can download episodes/movies from Netflix and then watch them. I do it when I fly or travel in the car since you don’t need WiFi

I am sorry about the WIFI. I assume you have already let someone know at the hospital? It seems like that would be a priority there since a lot of people like you face extended stays.

Thanks for the update. Please know that you continue to be in my thoughts and prayers!

It is so good to hear from you! I have been praying for you daily and wondering how you were. Hoping all goes well when you get the donor cells. Thank you for keeping us up to date.
