Ted and I went to Indy for his check up. That two weeks off went way too fast. He had great vitals. Good blood work. His blood work from 3 weeks ago , that was called "Who's who" , where they see how much of Ted bone marrow is the donor's and how much is Ted's old self. In July it was 100 percent donor, today they had the results of that blood test from 3 weeks ago...it was 95 percent donor and 5 percent Ted...they want to start watching closer. So Ted gets another check up in two weeks and a maintenance chemo....oh by the way the dr. said he wants it there in Indy, not in Noblesville (which is closer to us). So another week of that crazy traffic.
Ted played a round of golf this past Tuesday. He said he did not keep score but enjoyed it so much. He was with two of his golf pals. He was a bit sore the next morning, but by the following day, he was fine. But he did say he will wait for cooler days as the heat was exhausting. He had to wear long pants, sleeves, hat and gloves....so as not to burn in the sun.
Hope all of you are doing well. Thank you for your sweet prayers and kind wishes. XO love you.

This has been a good week and I know in my heart I have all of you to thank for it. So thank you dear friends, from the bottom of our hearts. We are so very grateful for all of you.
Friday was Ted's official 100th day. A great day in bone marrow transplants.Ted got his maintenance chemo every day this week. Granddaughter, Sierra, drove him there everyday but yesterday. Such a sweetheart to help us like she does. Ted drove himself yesterday, we went the back roads....no interstate speed drive for us. Ted received his labs, chemo I.V. , then the Hickman port was removed. Ted's counts are good. The doctor ( Dr. Luke Akard), said Ted can eat what he wants, go where he wants and do as much as he possibly can. No golfing for a week and no swimming. No mowing, or being in any place that could be dirty , like basements and attics. Not to be outdoors if there's construction, for fear of dust and dirt.....which can hold molds and harmful things. We go back in two weeks for a follow up and blood work. Ted may be able to get his next maintenance chemo in Noblesville a town that is so much closer and no interstate driving involved. That's a big plus for me, as I get to anxious in heavy traffic. :)
Bless all of you. I will always remember the prayers , well wishes, and kind words . Love you so much. XO
