I got the call from my doctor. My spinal tap results look great showing no sign of lymphoma in my CNS. He is aware that I want to go with E-POCH for treatment and they have me set to be admitted on Wednesday August 27th. Next week! The first round of chemo will be inpatient so I will be in the hospital from Wednesday until about Monday or Tuesday. My nurse also told me that she is trying to get me set up with a chemo backpack for the rest of my cycles. That means that for the 4-5 days that I would normally be in the hospital to receive my chemo continuously around the clock, instead I would go in every three weeks and get hooked up to a chemo backpack that I would take home with me and this backpack would give me my chemo through an IV continuously for the 4-5 days. That way I wouldn’t have to be in the hospital the entire time I am receiving the chemo. I did learn today that I will have to give myself shots every day which will be difficult for me but I’m sure I will get over it quick. I am bummed that I will miss my daughters open house for school and possibly her first day of school. But I am so happy that I have great friends and family that have all been so incredibly helpful. It takes so much stress off of me. One more long weekend to go before I can finally start treatment and then this will all start to become very real, very fast.
