Dr. Bobs Adventure

We've created this blog for several reasons. First is to keep family and friends(including Bobs' pts.)informed of Bobs' condition while he undergoes treatment for Acute Myelogenous Leukemia(AML) at HUP. You may also write to Bob by posting a comment, which I'll print for him to read. Please feel free to pass this blog site on to anyone you think may want to join us.Instructions to blog are listed under day 12, and bobs' address etc are under day 14.

HUP visit

yesterday charlie macy drove me to HUP to see the dr. . charlie has good luck, we were in and out in just over 2 hrs. the news was good ; although i still have the same 4 "expected"complications from the transplant they are slightly improving. this week i will stop the antiviral drug and that will hopefully raise my blood counts [so i will not need platlet transfusions], and decrease my fatigue. in 2 to 3 weeks they will do a bone marrow to check the status of the transplant. that is the big test. my goal for the next 3 weeks is to keep current on the blog, answer my e-mail and start to do some cooking. thank you for your prayers. bob

Dr. Mazzola,
I didn't think anybody got in and out of HUP in two hours. That must be some kind of speed record. It's great to hear that you are thinking of cooking soon. That sounds like a good sign. Sending prayers and good wishes your way. -Linda Vince
