I am stunned. I leave the hospital tomorrow. This is about ten days ahead of schedule. In two days my white blood cell counts rose to their highest level in a year. The doctors, in their practiced understatement, said this was a bit unusual and has no affect on my long term prognosis. I was told not to celebrate. What!? Clearly those are the words of folks who have never been on my side of the IV bag.
Of course I know how uncertain my future is! But who wouldn't think this is fantastic!? Tomorrow I get to feel wind, hear birds, and smell ... anything. The concerns of the future can wait for a few days because I truly did not expect to even see this one.
