SCT Day 12 - Going Home!

So I got clearance to head home today!  This hasn't been told to the kids so for those that know them please don't say anything so I can surprise them tonight.  My numbers have come back but they've not yet printed me anything (asked three time thus far!)  Bottom line, they're letting me go!  Here's what I have to do:

- Platelet transfusion - my platelets went up from 29 to 37 but normal is 150.  As a precautionary effort they're going to give me one more bag of platelets.  I don't think it will be an issue but I understand their precautions.

- Neupogen - they're also going to give me a shot of Neupogen (injection in the belly fat - easy to find on me!).  This is to help boost the WBC count which jumped to 12 today!  They're concerned it may drop again - me, I don't think that's happening but they're being cautious so I won't bitch!

- Remove The Tube! - once all this is done they will remove the tube - the port that's been in me since day 1!  I doubt they'll take a picture of the tube that's removed but I'll ask - nothing like a gory pic!

Now i need to be cautious at home and make sure I keep myself safe.  However, I'll be home, in my own bed and with my kids!  I can't wait to get there!
