Greetings all. Today I got a unit of blood and platelets. So now my iron should officially be back to its level before chelation. Oh well, I'll have three or four weeks to knock it back down before the transplant. Tonight they start my last bag of chemo and by late tomorrow night I will have finished the "consolidation". Then I will get blood and platelets to maintain levels and wait for what they said will be the no immune system fever. My new room/floor gives me a better view of the lake shore when I bike and I can walk the entire floor,not half, like the 15th floor. I'm still feeling good, missing home and work, but there will be plenty of both after the transplant. It still doesn't seem real, I feel like I could wake up and this would have been a dream. Oh, and yesterday I beat Jeff Hyler in tennis while I was attached to Dilbert (the IV pole). A few months back Jeff and Steve Thommm gave me a coupon for a tennis win, one from each. So I cashed it in yesterday with the help of Rob Weyer. Steve is going to have a bigger defeat as I will cash his in during the transplant.
