December 02, 2006 , Day 46


Hi Everyone! I almost forgot to do my update tonight. Menchie and I have been pretty busy. Well, Menchie has anyway. There are lots of little things that need to be done to get things perfect for taking care of me, like getting prescriptions, and holders for all the prescription boxes, and many other little details. Figuring out menus and cooking and all that round out Menchie's days. Speaking of menus, tonight I had my first all solid food meal. All parts were specially chosen of course. It was hard work and fun, but gave me more confidence that I can eat other solid foods. Exercise has been difficult for me. Occasionally, when I start walking I get winded very quickly and then get lightheaded and have to sit down. Then after sitting for a few seconds, I try again and I am fine. The hospital visit was not very interesting. I got an infusion of magnesium and that was it. The lab work all came back pretty positive.

My next hospital visit will be on Monday.

Blood levels: Hey! Check out the WBC!
