Slowly, slowly...

Slowly, slowly the count goes up. The lab results yesterday showed that Ford's WBC count went from a 1.2 to a 1.9. At this rate, he may be back within the normal range in 2 1/2 weeks.

Other areas that have either been H-igh or L-ow are leveling out and are nearly back to normal ranges.

Ford is able to sleep most nights, but when he can't he spends time programming (one of the several advantages to working from home).

He has been able to increase his exercise on the stationary recumbent bike, yet recognizes that his endurance is not even close to where it used to be.

Saturday evening we were able to have a small get-together with 3 daughters, 2 sons-in-law, and one grandchild. It was good to be able to celebrate the 4th with a family gathering. The high point of the event was when our granddaughter appeared and stood in front of us wearing her new T-shirt that had printed on it: "I'm going to be a big sister."
That really got the party going! So by the end of January 2010, we will have 3 grandchildren to love and spoil.

The blessings just keep coming.


  1. That is wonderful news about your #1 daughter being pregnant again. Congrats! You're gaining on us, with two new ones this year. We're only getting one! But with Joseph getting married and saying he wants 12 kids....ha ha. Maybe in a couple of years we'll get a few more.
    Love to you both.

  2. Those random "words" that we have to type in for security could make great characters for a science fiction novel. What is a lodsemin anyway?
