I just finished a brief review of the first poster sessions this afternoon.  Close to one hundred posters, all displaying research results for blood related cancers and other disorders.

There is a whole new set available this evening.  It is hard for me to pick-out the most important.  I can do that for multiple myeloma related studies.  But I’m not as technically strong when working with leukemia or lymphoma data, for example.

I think the best way to proceed is to slowly release results which might be of interest to my fellow blood cancer patients over the next few weeks.  Otherwise we will get bogged down and it all just seems like a lot of noise.

Today, while meeting with officials from Merck, Onyx and Millennium, I joked how I felt like a healthy, thirty year old in my head, but my post-cancer, fifty year old body wasn’t cooperating!  Its a good thing I’m not on my two week chemotherapy cycle now or I would really be dragging.

More first thing tomorrow, after I finish working tonight and get a good night’s sleep. 
Feel good and keep smiling!  Pat
