Hopefully you are back in the comfort of your home by now  and that infection is subsiding.

Just wanted to open a new page so everybody can give you support we all can use during hard times.

Wish you speedy recovery and lond term resolution,

    Dear Jeff

    You and Winter are real troupers, and we think of you always. 

    I hope that you are feeling stronger by the day.

    Thanks for being so

    Thanks for being so thoughtful Laz. I have been home since last wednesday night. The infection is under control. I still have a drain tube in my lung. They won't take it out until I am draining less than 5ml of fluid per day. i drained 16ml today so it will still be a while. Not fun walking around with a tube sticking out of your chest that is connected to a drain bag. I have to flush the line every day too which isn't fun but hey we all have to do what we have to do to survive. I was hoping to have it out this week so i could ride my motorcycle this week end. But I might ride it anyway bag and all. The other concern is that my white blood cell count suddenly started dropping even though I haven't done chemo in over a month. They think it might have to do with the IV antibiotics they were giving me in the hospital. I see my onc tomorrow and get CBC so we should have a better idea then. Hopefully the WBC started rising again since it has been a week since they took me off of those antibiotics although I am still taking oral antibiotics.
