Dear Family & Friends,

Things moved quickly and in the right direction since I last wrote to you.  On Sunday, Barry’s hematologist and also the new rotating attending, Steve Coutre, decided to start Barry on a full course (5 doses) of the second chemo he had been given, Fludarabine.  Dramatic progress occurred and by Tuesday afternoon, they were able to take the Nasal Gastric tube out.  He started eating and drinking (very mild and small amounts) on Wednesday and was released from the hospital yesterday afternoon.

We’re very glad to be home after 25 nights in the hospital, although there’s a long road ahead.  Barry’s still very weak.  His pain is much reduced and his digestive system is very slowly returning to normal.  He will most likely have an abdominal CT Scan in a couple of weeks and then another course of Fludarabine after Thanksgiving.

Absentee ballots arrived today.  We were getting worried.  If you’re in California: Yes on 30, No on 32, Yes on 34, Yes on 37.

As a good friend said:

Go Giants (done), Go Obama (Tuesday), Go Barry (work in progress).

Love to all,

Bonnie
