Home Again

Probably. I may be getting a little ahead of myself but I like to think by now I’m getting pretty good at the whole hospital thing. The only thing keeping me an inpatient is that my body has to clear the toxic amount of methotrexate in my system. The conversation went like this:

Me: “So if my 6pm labs come back wih methotrexate levels below .1, I’m good to go?”

Doctors: “Well, we’ll have to check the protocols to see which applies to your case but it’s possible…”

Yeah, I’m going home baby. Oh, and after that conversation my methotrexate levels came back at .02 – so maybe I’m not so clairvoyant. That and my nurse on the night shift said she was getting discharge papers ready.

When I was admitted they gave me approximately five days to go through treatment and be discharged. I spent five days not getting treated because of other complications, then only two days actually receiving chemotherapy. I get the opportunity to repeat this stage of treatment after my next admission (however soon that may be) so at least now I know my kidneys were forged by the gods themselves and have a penchant for tasty methotrexate.

    Woo hoo! Hope you are home enjoying your Tots & Velveeta! I will be sure to consume extra ketchup for you. Wouldn’t want Heinz to go out of business while you’re on sabbatical.
