8-16-10 Monday

Status:  8.0/10.  Getting a little bit stronger each day; appetite pretty good.

Events:  An early start at Hopkins today but a long day.  Just for simple transfusions, but lots of wait times.  Lisa and the kids came up, and they enjoyed Baltimore while I went through the process.  Good news – a few white cells started popping their heads up.  They should start increasing soon, and that will make all the difference.

Comments:  Don’t have to go back until Thursday.  Nice to have normal days at home.

    It’s good to hear you getting a couple days between visits to the hospital, Bruce — and to know you’re starting to produce some white cells. Good!!!

    Way to go, Bruce!

    Keep pushing calories (I’m a fan of Ensure-Plus) and take a multivitamin twice a day. All those enzymes need fuel and cofactors!
