We have been here a whole week.

So, Mike and I have been at Emory for his bone marrow transplant for 1 week. He went 5 days without being able to eat, but today his appetite returned , and he looks and feels better. According to the plan, his cell counts will bottom out in the next 2-3 days, after which the transplanted cells should begin to produce new blood cells. Once that happens he can be released from our present captivity. Maybe another week or so. Michelle and Rev. Larry came by today and we enjoyed their company immensely. Many people have texted and sent their good wishes. Mike is going to try to connect to his 12-step group tonight by phone. We love you all. Have a safe,healthy, and wonderful New Year. 2020 is the year of clear vision. It’s about time, in my view. So long from Happy Meadows!

Author: Black Magic

Black Magic is a handsome, charming, and self-absorbed cat who lives with Mike and Judy Gordon in Marietta, Georgia. He is about 7 years old, and he will remind you at every opportunity that his grandfather was Black Jack, that famous cat who wrote his own autobiography. Black Magic has a great many opinions, and despite his natural feline arrogance, he seems to be genuinely spiritual. But the reader can decide for him/herself.

One thought on “We have been here a whole week.”

  1. Our continuing prayer for Mike and for Judy and Michelle. And our prayerful thanks for the good medical treatment he is receiving.

    I am hoping for an Atlanta trip later in January and perhaps a chance to see Mike.
