Thursday +255 (Morning)

Just a quick note to let everyone know we will not be leaving today. It seems we will be here in Rochester for Xmas. Jackie's blood counts continue to improve. Her hemoglobin is low at 10.5. This is contributing to her lack of energy. Also the fact that her Prednisone dosage was reduced is another reason she doesn't have much energy. Her WBC count is very good at 9.1 and her platelets have skyrocketed to a new all-time high of 243. Her sodium level had risen to a near normal 133. So...she should be feeling fine; but of course she isn't.

Last night she spiked a temperature of 102. It remained at around 100 for most of the night and rose to 101 this morning. Her stomach has been "growling" at an unbelievable rate through most of this ordeal but it has recently settled down and seems more normal. Her appetite is still nearly non-existant, however.

So...we will continue to hang around Rochester until her fevers have subsided. We are supposed to get some snow and ice tonight so maybe WE will have a white Christmas.

Until Later...

Bruce and Jackie
