Round 4

October 18, 2004

I get admitted tomorrow at 8:30 am. They will do bloodwork and tell me by noon whether or not my counts are high enough. They’d better be after 8 injections and 1200 bucks!


Have not felt great of late. More energy which has been good but silly (irritating) things like mouth sores and sore muscles.


I haven’t really thought too much about this next round which has been good but, now that I’m so close to it, I have no idea what to expect. Each round has been so completely different that it’s hard to prepare mentally. I will be happy to get through this round though as I will feel like I’m on the downhill side of treatment. “Only 2 more” seems more manageable to me.


Hope you are well. Will write again soon. Thanks, as always, for your prayers on my behalf.
