Earls is home from hospital and has now got only 1 treatment left. His week went very well and was pretty much uneventful. His hemoglobin was a bit low, but did not require any treatment, so that was great. Earl had an interesting roommate and at the end of a day, requested a move himself. I know its not funny when you are sick, but I haven't laughed so hard in a very long time (behind a closed curtain...I must say). They did a CT scan and the results were good, stating that everything looked good....YIPEE! Earl was supposed to go back in on New Year's Eve, but Dr. Wong wants him to celebrate the new year at home and also to celebrate his 20th b-day which is January 2nd at home also. He will return on the eve of January 3 for hydration and resume his chemo on January 4th. He still welcomes visitors, and this being his last treatment....maybe we can encourage him to stay awake.
We want to wish everyone who reads this a very Merry Christmas and a 2008 that is Healthy Happy and full of Peace and Joy.
Love Debbie, Earl and Darby
