It was a good week away from chemo. My counts held up pretty well and I didn't need any transfusions of whole blood. I only had to get 1 bag of platelets (down from 2 bags last week). All in all, I can't complain. Chemo starts up again this wek with infusions on Tuesday and Friday.
In non-medical news, there were a few highlights:
- Our dog search has ended successfully. See photo below of Kona, our two-and-a-half-month old golden retriever mix that we adopted from a local rescue organization. She is a sweetie and we're not sure what else besides golden she has in her to make her a "mix". I guess time will tell. We'll be glad when she's housebroken.
- Thanks for all your prayers and good wishes for my stepmother, Kathy. She is now back home after her knee surgery and doing well.
- The Gators are 4-0 with a bye week before taking on LSU at The Swamp. We'll see what the Gators are made of on Oct 6. Meanwhile, FSU looks like they might be the real deal this year.
Thanks again to everyone for your thoughts and prayers. A special thanks to everyone who brought us food. There are some amazing cooks in our circle of friends and we really enjoyed all the variety of great meals.
I'll have more to report next week including a recap of our visit to the Wizarding World of Harry Pottter at Universal Studios.
