2nd ASCT - Day 89 - August 15 2012

Slept better last night after I took a Claritin 10 mg. Don't know if that worked or if I was just exhausted...but, I slept.

Walked with Kemmer this morning for 3.32 miles on the Mine Hill climbing up to a ridge over Mackay, Idaho to get panoramic photos showing the forest fire haze in our Big Lost River Valley. This was a climb of 342 feet to an elevation of 6,560 feet or the equivalent of climbing to the 26th floor of a high rise building. The forest fire haze has cleared some, but I still wore my N-95 mask all the way except for one brief photo op with Kemmer. This was my longest walk since my 2nd autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT) on 18 May 2012.

Wish my arms were longer ~
RN Sandy called from St. Luke's MSTI in Twin Falls and said the vorinostat approval is still in the works with Curascript and they have now involved a supervisor at Curascript. If the medication is approved by my insurance, I will have to wait an additional 5 days as they do not stock the medication. My life is could be hanging on this drug...but, no one is in a HURRY.
