No news is good news... Day 15

No big news from Maine Med. My counts have dropped and I am now neutropenic. If I leave my room I need to wear a mask. I feel fine though. Just completed day 7 of 12 of radiation. No side effects yet. Double vision has cleared up along with leukemia related rashes.

We have been in contact with with the transplant specialist in Boston to try to get an idea of when transplant may happen. He has stated that they want me in complete remission before they attempt the transplant. He mentioned mid November as a possible date. They are still waiting to confirm a donor. It is our understanding I have one (many actually) just need confirmation that they still want to donate.

Now just playing the waiting game for counts to come up. Probably will be a couple of weeks before I get to go home. Getting pretty bored. Just spent 2 hours watching You Tube videos on learning how to basket weave.

My wife lived in a Maine Med room for two months...seemed like an eternity at the time, but now I can barely remember it, and the only memories are good ones, weird huh...hang in there.

Just imagine if Earl Dunohy was in the hospital that long. Actually it he wouldn't let it last that long. He'd use the self check out lane and be home in Groveville in time for happy hour on Flaggy Meadow.
Keep fighting the battle my man.

Hey Chad ,
Instead of basket weaving , lookup chair caning. I don't know anyone who does this now .
Chin up man. You will be looking back at this before you know it.

Can you look up how to rebuild a single throat carb from a 62 CJ5? It'll be the first project once we get the jeep in the garage.
