Brian and the typhoon

Not too much to report today. Brian developed a little fever today, but it was easily managed with a cool room, damp towels and a dose of paracetimol (Tylenol). He's in excellent spirits. He has one more IV infusion of stem cells tomorrow. Brian's left arm & leg are much easier to move these day. Not sure if that's from the stem cells or physical & occupational therapy, but hey, we'll take what we can get. No changes yet in his vision, but all the doctors have said that if he gets any results, they would be slower to develop.

We've checked out of the hotel in Qingdao. It's was on the expensive side and it's more important to spend the available money on Brian's expenses while we're here in China. So we'll all be staying in Brian's hospital room. Fortunately he's in the larger "VIP" room, so there's enough room for all of us.

The staff here told us that there's a typhoon heading our way. Typhoon Damrey. Sean and Grainne thought they might be getting break from New Orleans' hurricane season. We didn't really plan on landing smack dab in the middle of China's typhoon season, but here we are. People seem far less frenetic about their hurricane preparations here; everyone seems to be just going about their business as usual. Damrey will apparently be passing just barely south of our position.

We'll let you know how it goes! Stay tuned!

  1. There are so many cases where the regular mode of treatment seems to be insufficient so at that case research is always open for the right alternate, and in this regard it is the stem cell therapy that is doing amazingly well. Thank you very much.
