Day Four: Filgrastim


It’s a good thing that I can post from my phone because pulling out the laptop seems overwhelming. I also used it to do some last-minute prep for another interview. I used the quiet time to review my portfolio and think of questions to ask.

Last night my mom brought over a roast chicken from Costco which I paired with rice and leftover cabbage for the kids. The Icyhot proved helpful again for the night. Diallo was not home until bathtime (thanks again Claire), so he was out like a light soon after.

I curled up to watch the American Music Awards with my teenage daughter- the only time I watch because it’s so fixed. Pink proved worth the wait, but my headache sent me to bed.

The headache did not subside and as I told the nurse today, I expected it to crack open during the interview. I’m glad to report, it did not (it went pretty well (all things considered). I came home to rest and receive another injection. But, this time I caved and she came with prescription pain meds. Ahhhhhhh! (That was the hallelujah chorus.) Not one for drugs, it did the trick. I just ate so that I can take another dose.

Tomorrow morning a car will pick me up to take me to the procedure. We’re in the home stretch kids…
