Another great report!

Nurse K, who is becoming my new best friend, called a few minutes ago with the results of yesterday's blood test. My red and white blood counts, which had been abnormally low, are both now normal! My hemoglobin is now 12.2, up from 11.7 last week. It is getting very close to the low end of normal for an older male, which is 13 or 14, depending on which resource you read.

All this suggests that the lymphoma, which has been negatively affecting my overall health, is being stopped!

No blood test is required for this Monday, but the following Monday, November 30, it's back to Big City for the next round of treatments.

More good news: today's weight was 170! Yippee!!! I might actually skip desert tonight.
