Great News...Bustin' Out...Grrr & Brrr

Ok...we're bustin' outa this joint! It seems yesterday's test and results was given to us incorrectly. Jackie's neutraphil count is actually 4000 today. Grrr...Remember she only needed 500 to escape this prison!

Her platelet count is still a 12, but they feel this is a result of her platelet transfusion and will move upward. We have a doctor's appointment with Dr. Zent on Monday and then we should be free to head home for a WHOLE week!

She will need to return for another treatment in about 10 days. They don't think she will be quite as Problematic on future treatments. Naturally she is thrilled!

I suppose the bad news is that we are spending another weekend in beautiful Rochester - and it is starting to get cold! Brrr....

Until Later....

Hi Jackie,
Glad to know you can come back home next week. I read a joke from a book and it made me laugh. Hope it will make you laugh too. Here it is :
The JUDGE was in a merry mood on Christmas Eve as he asked the prisoner,"What are you charged with?"
"Doing my Christmas shopping early,"replied the defendant.
"That's not an offense," sajd the judge."How early were you doing this shopping?"
"Before the store opened." :)
