I’ve been off antibiotics for 24 hours now, untethered from the IV pole. I’m enjoying the freedom of being able to walk around and flip around in the bed without being attached to my “dance partner”. I’ve been eating better – yesterday’s lunch went down better than breakfast, I ate some vegetable beef soup as an in-between, and Mom brought me a Marie Callender pot pie for dinner. Yesterday’s bloodwork showed that my Neutrophil count was still at zero, which is frustrating. Hopefully it will show a pop today.


I am a cancer survivor and 2018 Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Man of the Year Candidate. I reside in Southfield, Michigan with my wife and two kids.
