Those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31

things are looking a bit better a weird kinda way.

i have a wonderful new washing machine and my laundry is actually no longer overtaking the house.

tim was feeling well enough to actually go for a short walk around the block yesterday. it was a beautiful day.

his counts are doing what they are supposed to be doing. we are on the every other day going to the hospital for transfusion support. his platelets are starting to fall...yesterday we were dropped into the 50's. (they will give him platelets when they drop into the teens). his red cell counts are falling a bit and we anticipated needing a blood transfusion or two early next week. his white count is on the rise which happens just before the DIVE. (once they dive he officially becomes neutropenic and really really has to watch out for infections and stuff).

his stomach was unsettled earlier this week, but he wasn't sick at all yesterday. his mind...well, we may have a ways to go in that category. but i do see some signs of improvement. he was able to read (a little bit) again for the first time last night...he just hasn't been able to focus or concentrate on anything.

his blood pressure has been unusually low lately. they are keeping an eye on that and giving him fluids when it gets too low (like 84/48). a weird kinda way...things are a bit better.

i have had to take a few days off work to keep an eye on him...but i think i will be able to go in this weekend. meg and the girls will be around. plus his dad has been coming down pretty regular. he hasn't been able to drive yet so we will let you all know if we need any transportation help in the next few days...

enough rambling for one morning...we are back to the hospital on friday afternoon.

have a great day.

thanks for checking in.

We're around this weekend so let us know if we can help. Kevin is better so when he needs a break from the floor, he will call Tim. Love to you all, The Doyles
