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

HUP was a mess yesterday. charlie's luck did not hold, we were there for 3 hours. but, the news was good; the counts are climbing, the host vs. graft reaction is under controll,and the cmv infection is gone. overall they are pleased with the results. as i see it, my main problem now is the high dose steroids. the steroids make me hyper and fatigued at the same time. they can not reduce them any faster,so i will have to put up with these side effects for awhile. seeing the other patients in the waiting rooms at HUP reminds me how fortunate i am. thank you for your prayers. bob

sorry about the mess at Hup, but so happy to hear the good results.. keep going on this road.and maybe they can get rid of the steroids sooner..
i have to go back to work tomorrow after the summer off, same with mark, but patrick is still enjoying summer, in fact, i just had to kick some of this friends out so i could finally go to sleep..
very happy about the good news, and i'll continue the prayers.. mdf
