Early morning temps, significantly below freezing, are the norm these winter days around here. Now, I glance back... and take a gaze ahead to January. Ok, as most of you know, we're doing a rewind on my 'little adventure'. My white blood cell count was way down, due to an antibiotic I was taking earlier in the month. On December 14, I had my id bracelet attached and had been assigned my room, when the doctor called and basically said, " Not so fast my friend!" In some ways, it was like getting a reprieve from the Governor at the 11th hour. My mental state took the blow really, and since then I've been attempting to focus 'positive vibes' on my new date in early 2010. J- said to me, the night before I was to head in to MMC, "Dad, thanks for being so positive about your surgery. You, being so upbeat and all, made it very less stressful and scary for everybody". So, the holidays are mine, and that's a very good thing. Then we'll refocus, and try it again in early 2010.
