The Ordeal Continues, Day 7

The wait continues, anxiously watching Steven's counts. His leukemic cells were 81% of blood volumne today. I don't know quite what that means, but they are expecting this number to drop. His kidney numbers have started climbing. All they can do during this period of the chemo going about its work is support his body and watch.

The worst effects of chemo have not hit yet, although Steven is more tired. He said he feels bruised all over.

Again, thanks to everyone for their kind support. Although Steven is not able to work on his computer right now, I do tell him about everyone's e-mails and well wishes. It means a lot to him and he is cheered by each one of you who writes. This is a huge fight he has undertaken and a positive attitude is vital.
