Back Home!

Eric got out for good behaviour and is back home safe and sound! He is feeling 'okay' -- I don't think he'll be out partying for St Patrick's Day or anything, but he is feeling okay. And after the horrendous experience with the last round of chemo, we are all eager for him to keep feeling okay.

He will be on anti-'pain-in-the-ass'-biotics this week to help curb any re-occurrance of the infamous abscess. Tomorrow he will start giving himself daily neupogen injections to force those baby cells to be created and mobilized. His job now is to look after himself and grow stem cells!

Next week he will head back into the 5th floor medical day care unit for daily blood tests until they confirm that his stem cells are ready for collection. We need all your prayers, positive thoughts, good vibes, etc. -- we'll take it all. The stem cell collection has to work! Thanks everyone.
