11-12-10   Friday Day +16

  Status: 8.25/10. Improvement in mouth pain and swallowing.   Can physically swallow saliva, but not fluids.   It’s nice to feel it getting better.  My white cells are up to 230 and climbing.

 Events:   Still receiving antibiotics, anti-fungals, and anti-virals in amounts, and in kinds unheard of before.  Now checking me for graft vs. host disease daily.

 Comments:  Lisa was up here today, but the kids’ availability depends on our suspicions of their germ levels.  Love to hear their voices and how well they did this first quarter.  Enjoy the weekend.

    So glad the white cells are proliferating. I’m cycling to Cross City (near Steinhatchee) to see the new bedroom addition to Rick’s man cave. Hugs to you and the family.
