Rituximab Week One and BABY!

Six days after my first dose of rituximab my neck nodes are definitely smaller, but they almost seem more numerous. Maybe they were all mushed together before.

Let's see what the second week brings. I am very hopeful, but confused.

I have been working out daily in the hope of giving the therapy every chance to work, and driving tons of water and green tea to flush away the detritus of the killed B cells and protect my kidneys.

But the much bigger news is that I am a new grandfather. My daughter Rachael delivered a beautiful little girl very early this morning. No pictures yet.

We can't rush up to see mommy and baby (both of whom are doing great) until we return from the memorial for my dad.
