Today is ASCT +9.

I apologize for not writing sooner. These last couple of I days I have been worn out with med’s, their side effects, and diarrhea.

Hi all, This is Kathleen. Karl is very tired. I think it also has to do with the fact that he has not been able to eat much of anything because of the sore throat, which is due to mucositis. His hair has started to fall out, so we shaved his head. We knew that this was a possibility. He looks very good with a bald head! So far the facial hair is still in tact. I told him that seeing him with no facial hair will be strange, I have never seen him with a clean shaven face in the over 37 years that I have known him!

Last night he ran a fever of 102.6. He tends to run high fevers when he is sick, which thankfully is not often. They gave him Tylenol and it was 98.6 this morning. He was back walking the hallway today. That is a good sign. The doctor will let him know on Monday when he can come home. I am so looking forward to that!!! I miss him so much during the week. He is right we do not do well apart!
