January 12, 2004 DAY #76


Hello everyone! Sorry this is out late. Yesterday just got too complicated. We are visiting in San Diego, drove down yesterday after my doctor's appointment. We are taking care of lots of business, as well as taking advantange of high speed internet connections here at home for uploading wedding pictures. We had a nice relaxing weekend, and are both feeling a little less stressed.

On the medical front, more interesting developments. Blood counts are all normal levels. Creatinine was down to 1.1. That's below the top of the normal range. The doctor cut my dose of prednisone by half a pill, and also reduced my Magnesium. No other problems. They couldn't get any blood out of my catheter though, so they had to draw through my arm. The lab tech got it on the first try! Great job! My PSA level was very normal.
