Day -5: Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone!

Yesterday evening, Michael and I did another 13 laps. My rather modest goal is 25 per day. I’ve done 18 today so far.

I had no problems at all with the full Bu/Flu treatment last night. They’ve gotten really smart at knowing what to expect and prophylactically treating against nausea and seizures. I slept very soundly, probably due to the Dilantin, and woke only briefly for each blood draw. Dr. L reviewed the lab results this morning and said everything looked beautiful. I posted a better photo of him and the students today, as well as photos of Dante, Kemmie, and Trish. The pictures seem to be added to the albums in random order with no sorting apparent. It’s a rather primitive plugin with no extra options. Sorry about that.

Thanksgiving dinner was better than I expected, not the same as home cooked, but not bad–turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, cranberry sauce, and a roll.

Michael and I are enjoying a relaxing afternoon. We’re thankful for the wonderful medical advances and generous donor, for the kind and competent hosptial staff, and for our caring friends and family who support us so well. Thank you!


  1. Sounds like you did have a nice Thanksgiving dinner. That was nice.
    We went to the Hen House which is a very nice place and I ate twice as much as I usally do.

    It sure looks Like you have a very nice crew to take care of you.
    Tell them to do a great job as we need you back well.
    Have a blessed night

  2. Glad you had a good Thanksgiving. Is Michael eating the same thing as you each day, or does he have to go to the cafeteria to get his meals? Nick fixed us our meal. We had an Indian turkey with pita bread and humus and saffron rice. He did a very good job.

  3. Michael is happy to be on his own for meals. We’ve rarely been on the same eating schedule anyway, so it works well for him. 🙂 Indian Thanksgiving sounds great.

  4. I’m so glad things are going good for you thus far. Carl has a cousin with a brain tumor and has been going through chemo and such for the past few months. She’s always done well on her memory tests, so I had to laugh when you failed your first one. Tara (the cousin) has also commented several times on how loopy some of the medications make her. So it’s not just you. Hope things continue to go well for you, especially the days after.
