Good news...another fairly uneventful medical week passed. I did have to get a blood transfusion on Friday night (unfortunately, the hospital is not a great place for happy hour), but I made it through the first two weeks of another chemo cycle and am looking forward to a week of rest. I still feel a little worn down, so I have a sneaking suspicion that I may need to get some additional platelets this week. We'll see what's to come.
A special shout out to Barbara Barati who provided one of the units of blood that I received in my transfusion. Even though I have a feeling it was Garnet-colored Seminole blood, it still helped a ton. If anyone else in the Orlando area wants to donate blood directly for my benefit, you can contact Jennifer at 407.361.9288 or firstname.lastname@example.org and she can give you the details.
In this week's non-medical news:
- My cousin Nicole and her family will be in town from Massachusetts and I'm looking forward to spending some time with them this weekend.
- The Gators notched their first big win in a few years as they took down LSU at The Swamp on Saturday. Great to see them off to an undefeated start although I fear they're now over-rated at #4 in the AP poll.
- Even though I don't root against FSU until the play UF...I wasn't sad to see them go down to The Wolfpack.
- I wonder how many more people would watch the baseball playoffs if they happened before football season started. Do we really want to watch baseball in the snow in Detroit?
- Happy early birthday to Nana (aka Sue Brown) who celebrates another year on Tue the 9th.
- Shannon made her debut in the St. James children's choir at 9:00 Mass this morning. She had a great time...see photo.
That's it for this week. Have a great week and thanks for all the continued prayers and support.
