Well I didn’t have to wait as long as I thought before my platelets arrived. They were supposed to be arriving at about 3pm but they were ready for 1:00pm. So after having some saline and then my Velcade (which takes all of about 1min to administer) the platelets were put up and I was out of the hospital by 2pm.
I picked Charito up from work, just up the road from the hospital and nipped into Chester for an hour. Of course I had to visit Starbucks while I was there! It’s been ages since I’ve been to town, especially on such a nice day. I had my usual Grande Drip, but couldn’t drink it all, besides it was too nice to stay inside, so we did a couple of errands and then walked back to the car. I didn’t want to stay out too long, especially in the sun, I would only end up getting burnt and in be in even more pain, which I definitely don’t need.
