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:Bone marrow

a good visit, in and out in 90 min. including a bone marrow biopsy. overall thet are pleased. they want me to exercise more easy for themm to say-- i am poisined with cyclosporin to the point of shakes and fatigue, i feel the effect of reduced steroids, and my kneews are grinding with the slightest activity.but we will try some walking. i will not hear news from the bone marrow for 1 or 2 weeks. all my aother counts are acceptable. my b lood sugar is low enoughso that i have stopped insulin. we are making progress. thank you for your comments. bob

you make it all sound like a pierce of cake. which i know is far from what it is... just start slowly with the walking... 5 min here, and slowly increase..you can do it..but just try to adventure out in between those awful shakes.....hope and pray good results from the bone marrow...glad your sugar levels are getting back to normal....
we took patrick down to cal poly this last weekend.. it's about a 4+ hour drive.. i think i cried all the way there, and more on the way home.. the area is beautiful! I loved the campus, his housing, the beaches nearby..etc.. know he'll enjoy himself there,but it is lonely and different without him home...
will continue the prayers.. mdf
