I was unable to connect my labtop to the Internet, since I don't have a subscription to a dial-up service, like AOL or NetZero. Fortunately, the social worker was able to find an available labtop, which is owned by the hospital but used by the BMT patients. So, this is what I'm using to connect to the Internet so that I may check my e-mail and of course, update this blog. The labtop lacks a mouse, however, so it isn't the easiest to use but I'm managing. Linda, the social worker, said she'll try to find a mouse for me tomorrow. In the meantime, it may take a bit longer to type and navigate around the Web and if I find it too tedious, I may post updates less frequently than I would like but I'll do my best. One great thing though is that with this laptop I have an Eternet connection, which I would not have had had I used my own computer.

I am a thirty three yr. old Minnesota woman preparing for autologous stem cell transplant in March.
I found your blog several days ago and have been following your progress with interest. Thank you so much for all of the honesty and candor in your descriptions; I feel like someone else out there really gets it.
And when I read your 'Brokeback Mountain' review I was so tickled. I have already taken both my husband and my mother to see it. It was a great escape for me. Just gorgeous.
I wish you well as you go through this Duane. I hope you continue to post. Stay strong.

Hello Amy,
I'm sorry to learn that you'll be undergoing a stem cell transplant in the coming months. However, I'm humbled by the news that this blog has been so helpful to you. Thank you. That really means so much. Your comment assures me that this journal is reaching many people, some of whom who can benefit from it in some way. I'll continue to keep you posted and I wish both you and your family the absolute best as you face your own transplant. Keep hope alive, prizefighter!

Wishing you the very best,
