Thursday +255 (Evening)

Just a quick note to say that Jackie felt good for much of the day. Her energy level is still low. We received the results of her blood tests this morning and her hemoglobin is even lower than yesterday. This explains her lack of energy. Her Hgl today was only 9.4. This is down from yesterday's 10.5 and 12.5 when we arrived. Her white blood cell count is still very good at 7.4 which is down from yesterday's 9.3 and the 25.1 when we arrived. Her neutrophils continue to be good at 5.07. Her platelets dropped from a record level of 243 to 199.

Jackie's temperature was normal or near normal for the entire day. If it stays low the possibility exists we could still be released tomorrow for a drive home on Friday night/Saturday morning.

The weather here turned out to be a non-event so far. Much to the consternation of the local folks there has been no snow - yet.

Until Later...

Bruce and Jackie
