This is a blog about my journey through cancer. This storm will eventually pass as it once did a few years ago. But, this time I invite you to ride the storm with me as I tell you about its turbulent winds and raging seas. But even when the breakers and the waves crash down, there is a hope, an anchor, that when grasped will save me from the darkest and deepest moments. Not only does the anchor save, it brings life and light in the darkness so much so that I know I won't be wanting.

So a lot has changed in the last week. It turns out that, if all goes according to plan, I might be able to leave this place next week. My neutroblinkits are 1.32 today but because I've had a cord transplant they have to get to 2.5 before they let me out. They have been rising quite well, so hopefully it won't be to long. In terms of my symptoms, that I described in The Story So Far post, my back and shoulder are feeling much better and I feel comparatively much stronger - there's nothing like a good old fashioned blood transfusion to put a spring in your step. The strange pain that I was getting in my palms and soles has somehow got better very quickly and its quite mild now. To top it all off, I actually felt refreshed after last nights sleep. So things are going well. Thank you for all for your prayers, messages, cards and gifts. They have really encouraged me when I have needed it most.
