July 17, 2003


Today has been another uneventful day. Yesterday after finishing the update, we went out for a nice walk and listened to a choral group practicing in the lobby. It was fun singing along with them. The night was pretty busy with lots of interruptions scattered throughout. I still got some sleep but was pretty tired in the morning. I got some work done in the morning. We went out for another walk today after lunch and I talked on the radio for a while. After the walk I took a long nap then did some more work. I've been complaining about the food service. They keep leaving stuff off my tray that I ordered. Now, my menus have instructions to check them carefully, and they still come up wrong. I asked for the phone number to food service, but they won't give it to me. Oh well. As you can see below, my HGB and RBC counts actually went up today. One of my doctors agreed that this is probably a good sign. Hopefully the trend will continue. You'll notice that the WBC count also went up but this is still in the noise and is meaningless. I've been having fun today goofing around with my nurse. She has kind of a querky sense of humor like me.

On the medical front, the rashes are responding well to the lotion. My legs are getting a lot better. No fevers, no bleeding, no diarrhea, no major problems. Just waiting for my counts to go up. My INR didn't move today. It is still at 1.2. I still have hair and my eyebrows are still intact.
