Hi Everyone! It's more of the same here in Durham. I had my 5th treatment today of the trial drug. In addition to that I received platelets and potassium. I surprisingly did not need red blood cells. My hemoglobin was still at a good level even though I had not been given an infusion of red blood cells since last Tuesday. I am still having to go to the clinic everyday to have the site where they removed my hickman repacked and dressed - it makes it quite sore. This will probably go on for several weeks. The surgeon thought packing it instead of stitching it up would reduce the chance of infection. Basically packing lets it heal from the inside out.
Michael got back from his Europe trip on Sunday. He had a great trip with lots of good academic and cultural experiences. I have to say the chocolate we get in the states doesn't quite compare to the Belgian chocolate he brought me :).
Everyone in VA stay safe in the snow... I know you guys are sick of it!
