No fevers, no transfusions necessary today, and I still need to have some stitches pulled from last week's biopsy. Hopefully I can get the doc on that tomorrow. I'm still waiting for evening rounds -- these guys pull some late hours somedays.
Just thought I'd update that everything seems to be going o.k. today. I'm having some pain in my throat that may be mucositis starting in, but I'm hoping not. In the meantime they cooked up some "magic mouthwash" for me to use.

We were able to catch some fireworks last night. We found an area on the 10th floor that was nice and empty and enjoyed several different displays across the city landscape. Last year I watched fireworks from the window of the University Hospital in Columbia and my mind was so full, trying to grasp the diagnosis and all that had happened to us within the past 48 hours. I'm so grateful to be here a year later and find myself wondering some of the same things once again -- praying this does the job and I can achieve a remission that allows me to still be here next year. Ultimately it is my prayer that God be most glorified in my life -- no matter what that means. I pray it is in my ultimate healing here on earth, but also know it may be in Heaven that He chooses to finally kill the cancer. Thank you so much for being our prayer warriors this last year and continuing to pray with us for His perfect miracle.
