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. Click on April Archives to find both.

Stronger every day!

Hi everybody, Very quickly, cuz I am bushed, Bob is doing great! His appetite is much, much better and he's eating well and thinks the food is not bad at all. Still doing ensure too. His weight is down to 126#!!1!And there is not a drop of edema anywhere in sight. His breathing is comfortable and best of all, after one PT session he is walking to the BR And back w/ the walker! I'm so thrilled and proud! He is one determined individual! God, I love him! I've actually seen some big smiles and those shit-eating grins (sorry to be crude, but there's no better wsy to dedcribe them) that tell me he's getting his sense of humor back! Thank you visitors...Charlie, Bev and Joe, and Y&L. Also thank you for the beautiful poinsettia Mrs. A.! It's so nice to be posting good news! Thanks for sticking with us. You all are in our prayers of thanks forever! All our love, Bob and Mo
