Chemo Round 3 Day 4

Today has been another quiet day. I did not get any chemo today. I get my last two doses tomorrow. I am still eating and walking well and my mouth is not sore and I can still swallow OK.

I continue to get cards here and at home, it remains quite a thrill for each one. Many of you have written so many nice things. I have had several poems and very nice stories included in some of the cards. I got one today and while reading it they reminded me that I may not always be a "patient" patient. It is humbling to get so many good wishes and to hear how many lives I have touched over the years. These lives have all touched me as well and I am grateful for all the people I have met and dealt with. Sometimes my kids think I must know or have taken care of someone in every family in the Jacksonville area.

My counts are about the same. I have had a slight drop in my hemoglobin and platelets but not enough to do anything about it. My food was almost completely correct today. It at least tasted good.

Teresa was up here today and we played a board game called Ticket to Ride. It is about trains. We had a good time playing it. Our life is usually so hectic that we rarely get to sit down together and have fun. It was nice to be able to do that today.

Dr. Lanzotti has not been in yet so I do not know if he is still considering letting me go home this weekend if my counts are satisfactory. It would be nice but I am not holding my breath counting on it.

There is not much else to say today. I do want to thank everyone again for the continued prayers. May God continue to bless us all.
