October 14, 2003


Just a quick one today. The trip to the hospital was not very exciting. They drew a single tube for lab work, and the doctors wished me good luck at City of Hope. One week from today. It is kind of scary to think about starting up again with chemo and the rest. This next week will be busy for us as we pack things up and get ready to go. I don't have a cold yet, but it is still touch and go. All of the blood counts went down today. Maybe because of the biopsy. It took a lot out of me. :-) Actually, that could be part of the explanation, especially for the platelets. It doesn't really matter. A week from today the goal is to get everything down to nothing. Probably the next update will be a week from today after moving up to City of Hope hospital.
