day +1544

Before work on Thursday, I went to Sloan-Kettering because I needed to have my Tacrolimus levels tested before my appointment at 3:30 that afternoon. With Tacrolimus, labs must be drawn before breakfast which is why I had to go before work.

I left work early to make the appointment but I was still late. Everything looks good and remains steady, my doctor told me. My counts were normal. While my skin continues to improve though very slowly. My chest and belly are clearing up faster than my back, however. My knees, especially the right one, which have been sources of pain have felt much better during the past two weeks. My nails remain brittle. My nurse instructed me to keep them well-filed and short. The regeneration process is still visible especially with my toenails. Part of the new nails is visible at the same time that the old nails are eroding. Amazing and freaky.

No changes were made to my med list.

I return on December 8th for my next follow-up.

In other news, I found out late this week that I was awarded a 2011 SAMFund scholarship. I will put it towards my student loans. I am so grateful for the generosity of the SAMFund organization and its supporters. Thank you, SAMfund! If you're a young adult survivor, I encourage you to apply next year. It's a wonderful opportunity.
