Today was the day I checked in at UCSF MC for my Stem Cell transplant. We got the final word at 10:00 this morning that a room was available and that we should check in between 13:00 and 14:00. Dianne got home from work around 10:45 just in time to join me for a final walk before our trip to San Francisco. Dianne, Denise and I left for San Francisco around 11:00. We arrived at UCSF MC at 12:30 and wend to the cafeteria for a quick lunch before checking in.
This morning was a repeat of yesterday. Like yesterday, shortly after getting up I was overcome with the need to vomit. I stayed in bed until 8:30 at which time I got up wend downstairs and ate a slice of bread. After resting for awhile I wend for my 30 minute morning walk. I started to feel better after the walk. I rested after the walk, however my stomach started to act up a bit.
Overall it was a very good night of sleep. I am sure that much was due because of yesterday’s strenuous activities getting to and from the UCSF Parnassus Campus. As the mornings before, the muscle spasms in my left leg still are there, And today, the pain was a level 9 that took most of the early morning to wear off.
