Short Update

Hey guys,
Thought I would post a short message just letting ya'all know what is going on. My first round of Chemo Therapy was not successful, so yesterday I started a more intense round for the next 6 days. This is going to keep me out here in Denver until at least December. After I leave here, when ever that is, I am going to have to have a bone marrow transplant as soon as possible. A bone marrow is the only way to really cure leukemia. I dont know how much time I will have before the marrow transplant, or if the doctors will even let me do out in public. If I am in town around new years I will try my best to make a guest appearance to a party.
Overall I have been feeling well. I havent had too many bad side effects which normally happen. Oh and listen to this, the floor I am living on at the hospital is 3B. It is the third floor on Building B. I saw a wet floor sign with 3B on it. It just may end up becoming a souvenir from this place.
Anyway for those that want to know that didnt my hospital phone line is (303)839-6220 and my mailing address is:
Presbyterian/St. Lukes Medical Center
ATTN: Andrew Minshall Room 3220
1719 East 19th Avenue
Denver, CO 80218

I also have my cell phone, although reception sucks in here. So if you are ever board you can go ahead and give me a call.

There aren't too many male nurses so there would still be plenty of the lady nurses to work on Andy while you're there Jason.
