Day -16 Health Score 79
Today was a little tougher. I don't know if it is the Neupogen; I don't think so. I am just quite fatigued. I also think I'm down because I spent the day alone. However, I just spoke to Barbie and she is going to battle the rain and drive down here tonight. She feels good about her test but said that it was very hard. Our communication has become quite organic. For people that don't drink, we talk incessantly about alcohols.
I also am beginning long-term disability, hence the need for much paperwork and many phone calls. But I can't complain; Kaiser has been very good to me. To distract myself, I drove to Half Moon Bay today (a beach town about 25 miles from Mountain View) to ambulate on the beach (Doctors never use a one syllable word when a three or four-syllable will suffice). The waves were massive and I knew they would be great for boogey-boarding, but it is cold and I can't get my Hickman catheter wet.
I feel better this evening, probably because I will soon see my sweetheart.
