I'm feeling and eating much better, and the doctors are weaning me off the TPN, (the IV nutrition).

My new drug, Zelnorm is working great, and I seem to have recovered much of my previous demeanor.

Two big news items:

  1. I'm going home tomorrow!
  2. I'm not going to do any more chemo.

Time to start planning the victory party.

Hmmm, "previous demeanor." I guess that's good. (Glad to have you back.)

I have a little rush of elation and hope just reading this, so I can imagine how it must feel for you. Enjoy your time at home! See you soon.

Excellent news. So glad to hear it!

You know, apparently they chant the syllable 'ohm' in yoga to invoke the universal divine. I personally think the fact that 'home' sounds so very much like 'ohm' is NOT a coincidence. Home is something that belongs to you as you belong to it. It's where you feel, well, at home! Anyway, welcome home, Jim Guy.

Congratulations. This home coming must be very gratifying because the journey was so dark and dangerous. But it is behind you and it is a new day dawning.

Just catching up with your blog from a long trip. What fantastic news! I was hoping you could forego the rest of the torture regimen. Hope to see you soon. Love, Tom
