Hey Ed , while looking around the internet for methods to help my cousin with Lyme disease I came across this info on immune enhancing mushrooms found in northern forests . Apparently they grow on yellow birch in moist soils. I don't claim to have any experience with this but it might be something to look into.

This bone marrow transplant business is pretty debilitating. Ed will be in very rough shape for another 2 to 4 weeks -- don't expect him to be in contact for a while.

 Ye ha, I made it thru to the other side. Like  brucer and magic man said it is no walk in the park.
 On the 22nd  they gave me the chemo that literally kills every cell in your body. On the 24th they put my cells that they harvested a while back back in. This day is my new birthday. I was doing good  till I got two days of bad drug reactions then a virus called RSV ,and a hospital acquired pneumonia . They treated them with an antiviral and antibiotics.
 So now I'm home and building up my strength. And actually watching a NASCAR race for the first time in weeks.
 Thanks to everyone for helping me thru this. Your words and prayers have really helped.

I missed the first stage of the race. I had to put a dishwasher in and than a ride to see the canadian geese,only saw 50. It was a good day. I hope you will have some of them too.
