So I am sitting in my cozy new room at the Duke University Hospital. It's a little smaller than the BIG room I had at UVA but I have to say the bed is more comfortable. However, it is yet to be determined how the Duke hospital food will compare to that of UVA (the most important factor or course). I feel very comfortable so far up on the oncology/hematology wing. The nurses, nurse practitioners, and doctors have all been very welcoming so far.
I will start my next round of chemo tonight around 9:00. They are giving me two chemotherapy drugs. One of them is one that I received at UVA but they are giving it to me in a higher dosage over a shorter period of time. Instead of receiving it constantly for seven whole days I will have two one hour treatments a day for six days. This can make a difference in how the Leukemia reacts to it. The second drug is a new drug that I will get once a day for the first three days. Hopefully these drugs will kill off all the leukemia cells in the bone marrow this time.

As always thank you, thank you, thank you!
