September 02, 2006 , Day 23


After a pretty rough night due to coughing, they gave me a cough medicine with codein in it. That put me out like a light until about noon. I was still pretty groggy eating lunch, and dozed again until about 3pm. I went for a walk quite comfortably. It was two full "H"s. The wing of the hospital is laid out in an "H" pattern, so that is how we measure my walks. No transfusions today. Still peeling everywhere. It's a shame it's not Halloween, I would make a great zombie. Menchie plugged the computer in to the wall, and the cord exploded. It was completely cut right by the connector to the transformer. A visiting friend got us a new cord and we are back in business. Menchie was a little nervous about plugging it in again, but everything worked fine, and Menchie is a trooper.

For some reason, visitors need to wear yellow gowns when in my room, so if you want to come by, be prepared for a unique fashion statement.

On the medical front- Not much today. They gave me some stronger cough medicine like I said earlier. Since morning, my only fever started gently at about 5pm. It is breaking right now. No hard chills shaking the bed.

This is day 23, and my WBC went up again. We are anxiously awaiting the results for tomorrow.
