My sister Karen brought me blankets!!! which is so nice because anyone that has ever been in the hospital knows that the blankets are like big dishcloths, not very warm and fuzzy. She also brought me food, a coffee thermos, coat hangers and the greatest gift of all, a hug. Karen works a block or so from here. How weird is that?
I took another video for everyone but mostly for Erica and Rachel, because I know it must be hard to visualize what this is all like for your dad. It's long and a little boring, but might help. Your dad is going to be just fine. He is not ready to be the star of any of my videos, but I'm sure he will eventually. Keep praying and sending him comments.

So far everything is good. The only complaint is the bed. It has this inflate deflate feature to prevent bedsores but it keeps me awake. If I unplug the bed, the lower back/ but area deflates and it sinks like a huge pothole. So I will be starting my chemo soon, we'll see how that goes. This is getting boring real fast, but its just a step towards getting rid of the mutant cells in my bone marrow. If you look on the pics page Betty took a shot of my daily poster board. Notice my goals, I think I can handle this. Thank God for Betty!
