Tick tick tick tick.....
Bear heading for University of Michigan Cancer Center on Thursday (10-28) for beginning of multiple infusions of white blood cell building drugs and installation via surgery of another access port for all the plumbing they will use to kill my bone marrow.
Bear returning to same on Monday (11-1) for beginning of "harvesting" of stem cells. I will drive up every day until they count out enough for my transplant.
(Visions of creepy men in stained lab coats, counting little microscopic cells, giggling, with beakers in the background, steaming.)
Looking like I will be admited on or about 11-15-04. Yum.
Please Pass The Bunsen Bear
