Sunday +81 (11:30 PM)

Just a short update tonight. Jackie had a good day today. We had our growth factor shot this morning. Upon return to the apartment she was tired and rested for a couple of hours. This afternoon we were able to go on a 4 hour ride over around the Mississippi River and Pepin Lake. We crossed over into Wisconsin and circled Pepin Lake. This is a nice area with lots of small towns and a tourist area. I think every motorcycle in the US shows up at the lake on weekends. We must have see several thousand around the lake.

This evening we watched Lonesome Dove on the Hallmark Channel. This is a summer tradition at Nantucket. Usually on the first night we arrive we watch a Bee Gees concert and the last two nights before departure we watch Lonesome Dove down in the theatre. I'm not sure how this got started, but we've done it for 4 or 5 years.

All-in-all Jackie had a good day. She had some tiredness and a little pain, but better than past days. Tomorrow we have a 7:00 AM hospital visit for blood tests, a 7:30 AM growth factor shot, an 11:30 AM Pentamadine antifungal inhalation treatment (done once per month) and a 1:30 doctor's visit. So busy day. Depending upon her counts we may be released to come home. This time we aren't getting our hopes up, however.

Until later....

Bruce and Jackie
