    Thank you, He had good counts this AM – HGB 11.3, reds normal plts 77 and the whites norm at 10 but higher then we like.

    Shots were ok but by the end of the round Bob ususally starts getting tired.
    Thank you for the support.

    Bob had his second dose of the Vidaza yesterday he has the weekend off and then all week coming up. His counts were good at the start, 11.3 on the hgb we were thrilled with that and the plts being up to 77. He is feeling tired today which is naturally but none of this seems to bother his apetite.
    I can’t remember who told me about the Arnica Gel for the brusing but Thank you it is helping.
    They did a bmp Blood test as usually at the onstart of the Vidaza to check the liver and kidneys. They were always concerned as Bobs creatinine was a little on the high side (Kidney stuff) Anyhow the Nuturitionist has him on a supplement besides all the water he drinks. and he is now always in a normal level so we are greatful for that

    Sorry For Rambling so but I find this is my only place really that I can just pour my heart out. Even though Bob is Maintainign so well I still
    WORRY SO MUCH. I get afraid as this disease seems to be able to take a turn for the worst at any time.
