Doing well

Day -6 Health score 82

This week I have been recovering from the stem cell harvesting. Mostly I have just been fatigued. I guess Tuesday I would have had a health score of 75, but that has gradually improved. It was wonderful to visit with my family yesterday. My brother, David, was visiting from Alaska, so we got together at my other brother's house (Daren). I made funeral potatoes. Now I know where they get the name; they contain quantities of fat incompatible with life. But they taste so good.
Barbie and I have spent a lot of time discussing glycolysis, the Krebs cycle and oxidative phosphorylation (how we get energy out of glucose) it is quite esoteric, but also diverting.
Today is another gorgeous day here so I plan on going for a hike and getting one last restaurant meal with lunch at CPK. (the carne asada pizza is delicious).
Our ward has been incredible this week. People have brought over meals and treats and generally have expressed so much support and caring. It is very humbling to be the recipient of so much love.
