Day +5

Sorry for the lack of updates, but my energy levels have really been bouncing along the bottom.

This was as expected, and Dr Burt had no concerns since my 'numbers' were exactly where they should be.

As I am neutropenic, my vital signs continue to be monitored every 4 hours. This along with the 8 hourly IV antibiotics means that sleep is hard to come by.

Connie was my nurse for the evening.

On another note, my buddy Bryan Hinkle was discharged on Thursday. He has made a great recovery, but I miss having a friend on the other side of the concrete wall

As usual, my Rock [Vineetha Rajan] continues to be resilient to everything thrown at her. Each time I turn over to look at her, she is smiling. Soon she will be able to sleep in a proper bed and get a good night's rest.

My kids on the other hand have fallen in love with USA, so prising them out of the country may be a problem ...

  • Seen by 40
