Munching MM

The good ol’ Rev is still chasing down and munching on those pesky little MM cells. There aren’t many of them left, but they sure are illusive little beasts. Their protein expression is still hovering around 10% of their peak value. A sort of stalemate…

I Need A Change

Seems like lately my life has become so routine it’s like I’m stuck in suspended animation! Day in, day out the same thing. Since I no longer go to work everyday like I did for 30 years straight I sometimes feel totally useless like my life has no purp…

February 2009 Update

Hi all, I went for my normal monthly treatment at the Milton Keynes Macmillan Cancer Unit on February 12th 2009. For a change my IV drip went in first time, they don’t worry me at all now, I am so used to them. The good news is that the Sandoglobulin Infusion is working, basically it’s […]

My 2008 ARRL Field Day Experience

Freezing Fog

According to the Weather Underground this morning we are experiencing: Freezing Fog with Active Advisories: Winter Storm Warning, Flood Warning, Special Weather Statement (US Severe Weather), Active Notice: Record Report, Public Information Statement

Just what is freezing fog? This looks like snow to me, but I guess if it is thick enough then you can call it freezing fog. Why not flaking fog? How about falling frozen fog with significant accumulation of fallen frozen fog particulate? Now not a mere 15 minutes later we have freezing sunshine.


I learned on Monday from the lead author of the early December presentation at ASH on GRN163L that yes indeed the Telomerase activity in the bulk tumor fraction of my bone marrow decreased by 78%. Yet another reason which I forgot to mention earlier to party tonight.

Its Party Time

Marlee is no longer captivated by the scene changes in the Nutcracker Suite. I on the other hand am still in awe of my response to Rev/Dex. I am now in the 90% response range. Every single CBC, CMP, LDH, CRP… is in the normal range except a slight an…

Meet the Man’s

Gingerbread

Sorry, but I don’t have any dorky pictures of Lu and I as the happy couple, The Man’s. That would be Ginger and Bread. What a wonderful event though. So wonderful in fact we are now the proud owners of a new house. It so reminded us of our summer place…
