Day -9 (Mar 31) - Filgrastim injections start

Not too much to report for today.  Over the next several days, I will be receiving injections of Filgrastim which stimulates the production of stem cells in my bone marrow. I feel a bit nauseous and have been battling a pretty good headache but all is good and manageable at this point.  

The medication layout for the next few days is as follows:

Day -9

  • Filgrastim
  • Dexamethasone
  • Ondansetron
  • Pantoprazole


Day -8

  • Filgrastim
  • Dexamethasone
  • Ondansetron
  • Pantoprazole


Day -7

  • Filgrastim
  • Dexamethasone
  • Ondansetron
  • Pantoprazole


Day -6 will have an extra 3 medications, but I'll update later for those.  

Lauren will be going out with some of the group tomorrow to do some site seeing here in Puebla.  I will probably stay in as I am uncertain how things will progress for me tomorrow.  I hope the team has a great time.  

Be sure to post any questions you may have.

  1. Hey Leslie,

    Great to hear that the treatment has started. We all wish for your speedy recovery. Salute to the fighting spirit of you and your family. It is great to see how you guys are coping up with that. I am just waiting to get the Financials for Subsea back from you so that I can start challenging you again on the costs :)

    Prayers for you and your family
