Day Three...

...and counting. This is my third day in the hospital and I just finished my third round of chemo with Fludarabine. I still feel ok, just waiting for Monday and the actual transplant. I am, however, rediscovering, however, one aspect of life in the hospital. It can be and often is mind numbingly boring! My universe now consists of a small room, and a corridor about 30 yards long. I can walk down to the window at one end, and back to the double doors at the other. I'm pretty sure that nothing exists beyond those doors, even though I have seen people go through them and come back. I just know if I go through them I'll fall off the edge of the world, because there is nothing past those doors for me, not yet anyway. It's going to be about a month before I can go back through those doors. I plan on going through them and never returning. I plan on going through them as a survivor.

you do have the world of the Internet, which connects you to friends who are like the stars, you might not be able to see them all the time, but they are always there.

Gee, where have I heard that before, seems to me I read something like that every time I walk into my office)

John, the Lord watches over you and will get you thru these next few weeks of boredom, anxiousness, fear, joy, and anything else you feel while you are bound within the hospital walls. Keep the faith and think "REMISSION"!
Be blessed!
