Journal entry by LeRoy Wegscheid

Hello to all.  Today LeRoy had his 9th chemo shot and we also saw his oncologist.  LeRoy's labs continue to be stable, and he is feeling quite good most of the time.  Sometimes he is more fatigued than others, but finds strength to help keep the lawn mowed, make some wine, and do some of the cooking.  Life is good, and we are thankful for every day.  His red and white blood count actually went up a bit this week, which Dr. Zahr says might indicate that the Velcade is starting to lessen the myeloma cells, allowing the marrow to produce more of the red and white blood cells.  That is very encouraging.  We thank you for your continued prayers and support.  God Bless, Ruth and LeRoy
