Finally:  today my blood report shows non-zero white cell counts.  My neutrophils are at 80.  They have to be at 500 for me to be released.  There’s only the one data point so far so there’s no trend line.  But the doc is “cautiously optimistic” about meeting my deadline.

I definitely feel better today.  I did the hallway tour by myself in the morning, did some stretching even.  It’s a-happenin’ …

    Bob, you can narrow it further to the inventors of it!

    And my congratulations for:
    1) The awesome increase in your cell figures
    2) The match against the English team

    Simply magnificent (I love this word, and more when I have the opportunity to use it for events that really deserve it!)
