Hi everyone,
Well i am happy to report that i am actually feeling alittle bit better. i am somewhat still shaky and weak but i can EAT Yeah. today i felt like an actual person again. So i think i can say i see 3/4 of an eyeball to the light. i did go to the clinic which by the way is at the Methodist hospital today and get some more IV fluids and the doctor says that i can have the day off tomorrow but he does want to see me on Monday. My blood counts are good but the platletts are still a little low but coming up everyday. i just want to say to Don thank you so much for the prayers and comments and to Beth & Joseph who are awaiting up coming Transplants don't let my words be discouraging because it looks like it does get better and i am hoping the end result will be good. I will keep posting and hopefully i can report good news tomorrow also. Thank you to Aunt Blanche also for yours prayers. i can't wait to get this catheter out maybe next week if i don't have to have IV fluids anymore. the procedure for that dosen't sound good but it will be worth getting it out i have had it since end of Nov. Well thats it for now. Hopefully tomorrow i will be even better.

Hi Susan,

Getting the catheter out is nice! It was such a relief when mine came out. I think I hated that thing more than being in the hospital, the harvest and the chemo all together.

I'm glad you're feeling better. Maybe from now on it'll all be smooth sailing.

We're all pulling for you.

I have been reading your blog for a while now. When you mentioned the Methodist Hospital I knew you must be from San Antonio. My wife has just started this fight at 46. She is going to CTRC and seeing Dr. Drengler at South Texas Oncology and Hematology. I will tell my wife about your blog!
