Good numbers

I wanted to do an early post today because I left things last night pretty sour. While Mike still feels like crud and is still weak, his white cell counts are back to normal and some of the other things like the kidneys, etc. are improved as well.

Dr. Neel was very happy this morning. He said the light at the end of tunnel is near. Things should start to pick up.

Although I'm still having a hard time reconciling what the doctor is saying with how Mike looks. I'm a very impatient person.

However, he is reading the newspaper as I type and they want him to try to sit in a chair sometime today. I think I may bring Julia in this afternoon.

Carrie and Mike,

I hadn't checked your blog lately and was stunned to hear your news. I can't imagine how difficult this must be for both of you. My friend Kim, who has breast cancer, was in the hospital for a week in the fall after 5 weeks of chemo. We think she had swine flu. But the medicine did eventually kick in and she got well. I know Mike's body has taken some punishment this past year, but I'm sure he'll rally and get past this. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
