Day 311

I went to the the docs last week for the lab results and also took a series of lung tests. The lab biopsy results were all great. I'm still 100% donor and 100% male. I am still a little anemic but it's slowly heading in the right direction. I'll meet with the chest doc on sept. 14th to review my latest lung tests. My biliruben is holding tight at 2.6. The docs say I can't do anything but wait. I asked Dr Toor (the strictest of the docs) my long list of "can I" questions. He's the king of no. On the 14th I see Dr Chung who is the King of Yes. I need McCarty. He's the big cheese. I'm not sure when I'll see him. The better I get the more boring I am as a patient (good!). I have my next bone marrow biopsy on Halloween and then it should be 6 months before the next one. Things change but I'm hoping this won't. I have been having a biopsy every one- two months for the past 2 years. My lower back looks like the big dipper!
I'm teaching on-line and doing the gallery and my office hours. I'm still being diligent about napping, nutrition, juicing and exercise. I'm working very, slowly, but I'm working. My hair still looks like Bill Clintons. James and I were practicing our presidential impersonations. He's doing Reagan (booooooooo) and I'm doing Clinton.

Stay well,
