Note from Callie
Charley, my mom, my dad and I are sitting here at the hospital in my mom's room (Nate was here all day too but just left). We had another visitor, Maria Krokidas, my mom's friend from college (in the pink) who, as a resident of the Boston area, has been incredibly supportive over the past eight years as my mom has traveled back and forth to Boston for appointments at Dana Farber.
So far, I am really impressed with the hospital itself which is an amazing and beautiful facility. Everything in my mom's transplant wing is run impeccably. Even more impressive is the gift store...probably the best hospital gift store i have ever seen. Seriously. We spotted a water gun that dispenses ketchup and mustard...which am definitely going back to buy tomorrow.
My mom is continuing to have chemo treatments and is feeling ok so far. It's a bit frustrating for her not to be able to go outside (or even outside her small little unit) since its such a beautiful day here in Boston. Nothing else too exciting to report...which is a good thing! My mom is loving getting to see the comments on the blog, so thank you all for writing (and for those of you who have emailed me directly as well).
That's all for now...
