Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
I have passed my best to Joe on FB but it never hurts to let people know you care.......and we do.

Update on me: Healing okay after dumbass fall. Rib still hurts and light bruising still but overall about healed up. GREAT NEWS on the blood work.   My red count is climbing closer to normal, my hemoglobin entered the low normal range as did my platelet count which is 147! Other numbers coming in line and the Doc was all smiles.   We discussed my dislike of shots and she signed for a port. She never suggested it before as she was afraid my health would cause problems. So I get the port this week and next week I do the Vidaza through it. I got this week postponed. NO MORE SHOTS!!!

Doctor Sundaram also said we would back off the weekly blood tests and Aronesp to every 2 weeks and hopefully then to once a month. She was very pleased at progress and that I responded to this and then dropped this bomb she didn't mention before----Only about 20% respond to this treatment.

Thanks for all the good thoughts!

And for my mates aboard this compassionate cruise, I want to say thanks even more and tell you how lucky I am to be a part of this crew. UP YOURS!!!!!! LOL....Many thanks
