D+3: That’s great it starts with an earthquake … It’s the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine….

Cytoxan chemotherapy complete. Karen’s blood counts are expected to crash and stay down until engraftment occurs in the next 2-3 weeks. Back to toast for dinner. All normal and in line with the protocols – just like standing over the edge of a cliff. Normal (depends on the view ).

“Headline” from R.E.M.


  1. I am glad everything is normal. Now if only you and Karen could just feel normal all would be well.
    Love you both.
    Cathy 🙂

  2. You are doing great Karen! Hang in there – the best is yet to come. Hugs to you.

  3. I can’t wait for your Here Comes the Sun posting – I know it’s coming eventually! Thinking of you . . .


  4. Karen,

    Had that line on the blackboard in my office (back when offices had blackboards) for years.

    I have to read up more on this cytoxin for consolidation idea. Sounds fascinating.

    One of my recent roommates was a former National Cancer Institute pharmacologist and he mentioned that lots of folks are looking into this idea.

    Here’s hoping it turns out to be perfect for you! I love the edge of cliff line.


  5. Good Morning my dear friend;
    Wishing you the very best so you can be back home and back to living a normal life. What is normal anyway, I still have not figured that one out.
    Have a very blessed day.
    Jan & the fur purrs
