"You got to pay your dues if you wanna sing the blues and you know it don't come easy" Ringo Starr

Another boring visit to the clinic. Lab is stable. Rash is better, but not gone and I am eating consistently without pain for the first time in weeks since I stopped the glucosamine sulfate last week. My knees are worse, but I have options.

But there is one possible hint of news. I have a slightly dry mouth. Could be nothing, but it could be the first hint of Graft versus host (GVH). To be that, there must be a graft. THERE MUST BE A GFAFT. THERE MUST BE A GRAFT. I have never been so very happy about the possible birth of a disease. Without GVH, graft versus tumor (GVT)  is less certain. And without a graft, well I am not going there.

Now, I admit I am reading tea leaves here, but it makes sense. Test to measure the progress of my engraftment will be repeated in 10 days. That will be about 60+ days post transplant.

My next post is some news about going out. Hint: Hockey plays a big role.

I will also soon be asking for your help with some ideas I want to put into words and I will badly need your feedback. More on that soon.

Go dry mouth. Glad to hear that a slight GVHD is coming around. Let it be mild and short.

Are you going to play or be a spectator of hockey? If you are playing, be careful.
