Not sure how many of you remember that my brother was diagnosed with myleodysplastic syndrome a ways back, well he had a bone marrow transplant and was sent home a few months later. He ended up doing so good that his doctor told him he only had to make the 300 mile one way trip once a month instead of weekly. Well, he just had his checkup and his doctor told him he can go back to driving truck in 3 weeks!:woohoo::woot::happydance: He said that it would be better that he not do the short trips as he can wear him out getting in and out and loading and unloading so I think he will do long hauls from CA to UT or somewhere like that. As a result of him being so sick for so long, he started losing strength in his legs, so he has been going to physical therapy for a while to help with that.

But he can go back to work!:woohoo:
