Day +176... First Immunization Shot

5/22/14 – I had my 3 week check-up today and all is GREAT!!! All my counts are right where they need to be and I continue to feel good. I hit another great milestone today. I no longer need to take Prograf and Penicillin V Potassium. Many of my restrictions can now be removed. I actually have been given the OK to have a beer. I am not a big drinker but I must say I am looking forward to enjoying a cold beer. The one thing that seems to be a big concern is exposure to the sun.  As a precaution I apply sun block each day before I head off to work.  
Also today I received my first immunization shot. It was the pneumococcal vaccination. I guess it is kind of like getting a flu shot. It was really no big deal.
I met with Dr. Rowley today. I think he was truly surprised on how well I am doing.
Next on my "things to do" is to get my periodic PET scan, which is scheduled for June 16th with me getting the results on June 20th.
my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold and my refuge, my savior; you save me from violence.  I call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised, and I am saved from my enemies.2Samuel 22:3-4
More to come…
