8-30-10 Monday

 Hope you all had a good weekend, it was a good one here.

Status: 8.75/10. Went for a walk with Lisa and Rachel, feeling stronger daily.  

Events:  One of our quickest trips to Hopkins.  White cells and neutrophils keep climbing, and labs looked so good they said to go home.   We’ll check in Wednesday, and look forward to fewer and fewer days each week at Hopkins.

Comments:  My recovering lab results after the second round of chemotherapy are paralleling what we saw after the first round.  Although it could be argued that my feelings of wellness, strength, appetite, and endurance are just increasing at the same rate as my white cells but not related to them, I feel strongly that they are directly related to the white cell number.  Those white cells are either producing some good substances or blocking some bad ones.  In either case, I’m feeling good now and look forward to  feeling even better over the next few weeks.
