June 20, 2014 Stem Cell Stimulation Begins – not enough funds for payment – Day 5Posted: June 21, 2014
I’m calm about the treatment beginning. I’ve received my first dose of steroids this morning.
However, I’m extremely nervous that I have not raised enough funds to pay for the treatment.
I hoping some wonderful benefactor will come through at the last minute. Time will tell.
Yesterday, 7 of us left the hospital grounds. It was my first shopping trip to a local grocery store. I made it down half one aisle and my iphone was gone. I got dill, cilantro, arugula, tomatoes and cucumbers. Not my best day.
Irina is on the cleaning staff and she’s a medical assistant too. She works 24 hour days, smiles and teaches me Russian too. She’s going on vacation for 10 days, but I will see her when she returns.
Marian and Robert came during breakfast. We tidied up and got organized once again. Tried to unsuccessfully set up viber on my ipad now that my phone is awol. Had trouble with skype as well. While I was figuring out if there was any way to get my phone back, Marian and Robert went searching for more supplies for me.
They did some exploring along the way.
Sheila had undergone a full day of testing. Carol may have been picking up her son, Harry from the airport.
Beautiful Church right outside the entrance to our rooms.
We explored and found a beautiful green house.
Marian and Robert’s last day. They tried to take as many photos as possible.
