chemo day 2

GPRS not fast enough to watch the AF3 live telecast via the Internet. So here I am blogging instead.

Had my second chemo today. It's the last chemo of this transplant protocol. It went by quite fine, just as yesterday. So, tomorrow I'll have Cyclosporine injected over 4 hours for anti-rejection when the infuse the stem cells on Monday. The amount of cyclosporine will be reduced over time, but the doctor told me that I would have to take it for at least 6 months or so. It's a type of steroid, so I really hope I don't grow a beard or facial hair or anything weird like that.

Ida J: Didn't you lose any hair taking the cyclophosphamide? I'm expecting to lose hair anytime soon. Next week maybe.
