    Tom is still in the hospital. With all the challenges he's facing he is managing to stay positive. Treatment hasn't started yet as they want his blood levels stable. Today was the Echo for his heart which I assume is normal based on the report I saw. Tomorrow they are taking a bone marrow sample. If all goes well they'll start a milder blood thinner, watch him a few days and then start the Chemo. He told me to stay home tomorrow because the bone marrow thing is scheduled for noon. I didn't argue because I am exhausted and could use a little time to regroup. I feel so selfish saying that!

    So far his liver numbers look good. It's such a worry with the reduction in immunosuppressants.

    not selfish at all.
    you need to stay strong and healthy for tom.
    tomorrow he will be probably sedated for the blood marrow test and will not be up to having company.
    it is a good day for you to "regroup" and catch your breath.

    cyber hugs from across the miles

    i agree with Andrea. You need to take care of yourself too and you are not being selfish. Sitting in a hospital all day is exhausting. Take care and sending prayers for you and Tom.

    So sorry to hear. Don't let yourself get run down, it does Tom no good. Stay rested up the best you can.










    Hoping for a 30th anniversary trip to our favorite place.
