Today was a mirror image of yesterday with the exception that the doctors told me I wasn’t doing well…. I was doing very well.
As you can see, my white cell counts are still at 0.1 – the neutrophils are at 0. As we were writing this post, a Li came in to change one of my lines and overheard us talking about the cell counts. He added some more information – the A+ is based on the fact that I haven’t had a blood transfusion for a while, and my cell counts and platelet counts are holding steady. This is an indication that some of the newly implanted bone marrow stem cells might be starting to do some work.
My neutrophil count will still take another 3-4 days to come up from 0. It’s a long road to recovery.
Good news is that the pain control is working well enough to allow me to drink a can of soft drink and eat a red Zooper Dooper for breakfast whilst doing my daily bike session. Nothing like mixing work with pleasure.
You will also notice that despite the 40 degree heat here in Melbourne today I am wearing a beanie, its a strict “No Hat , No Play ” policy for me here on Ward B

Good news! Great to have a chat. Glad you are doing VERY well !
Great news Geoff. X
Fantastic Geoffrey, keep it up.
Thanks for supporting the parking charge issue at Wagga. Col Duff and I had a meeting with the Mayor and GM yesterday. Their inability to accept the very basics of economics of price v demand along with the concept of cost benefit analysis is astounding. I really worry about Greg!
One day at a time……
Great news Geoff – keep up the good work!
Im sure you should be sitting still while your nurse attends to all your needs Geoffrey
Classic ..looks like you are in good spirits. Keep up the good work Geoff and Jan and favourite son,

So much for the sugar free lifestyle Geoff! But whatever works is the main thing.
Good news Geoff, glad to hear everything going to plan, or better
Kaz says hi too!
The reports have a good feel about them from a non medical accountant ( yawn) point of view. Ash Barty and GH have great fighting spirit. Keep it up
Glad everything is looking positive Geoff.
Brie and family x
