My Story

Welcome Friends & Family. Being a patient is more than a full time job and I'm trusting that this site will allow me to keep everyone updated these next few months. Having battled the f-nhl beast for over 10 years and learned much, I feel I'm in the best hands possible here in Seattle at SCCA aka The Hutch. Cheers, dj

Hello Dear Friends,

Our dinner theather night out was awesome!! Thanks SCCA & ZinZanni for a wonderful show and an outstanding 5 course meal. I've not eaten so much in one setting for weeks. Of course, I ran out of steam and DH had to finish my steak ;-)

Well, I got my month off - though not quite in the way I expected. The spleen issue may be fungi, they're not sure, and I'm spending a month with anti-fungal infusions. Thankfully, I can do these at home and don't have to go into the clinic every day.

There is a small blood clot in the Hickman so today I get to learn how to give myself injections -ewwww! But then, I won't have to go to the clinic twice a day for them to do the deed.

My energy is recovering and I've been walking lots more. Will start yoga classes next week. I do so need to use every bit of this month to recover.

Thanks for all your good wishes, they are so helpfull. Hugs dj
