Hello everyone! Things are going well here at Duke. I'm still feeling great and ready for the next phase of my treatment to start. We found out today that I will be going into the hospital on Friday for the next round of chemo. This will again be a seven day regimen and I will be in the hospital the whole time. Like at UVA they are hoping to get me out of the hospital as soon as possible after the treatment as long as my fever stays down. However, this time I will be going "home" to a townhouse we are going to rent instead of the lovely Red Roof Inn Resort (: - Friday will be a busy day with me going into the hospital and Michael is also moving into the townhouse. However, we are very excited we found something to rent so we will feel more at home here in Durham.
Now to the more important part of my post. I've learned many things during this experience of having Leukemia and one of them is to appreciate being from a small town!!!! You guys have banded together behind me in ways that I could not have ever imagined and your support helps me keep this positive attitude that I keep getting comments on. I hear Cucci's was amazing yesterday both in the number of people who turned out and also the atmosphere. If only I could have been there. Thanks to everyone who came to eat or called in orders. A special thanks to Mrs. Proffitt and the AHS Key Club! A special special thanks to Victor Cucci and the rest of the staff. I will have to come meet you and thank you in person when this is all over. I just can't say thank you enough.
Hope everyone is well!
