Aug 28, 2009

So today is my police grad and unfortunately my health just won't allow me to attend. I am disappointed but I also know my health is the most important thing right now.

The nurse was writing my cell counts on the calendar today and asked if I had a platlet transfusion because they are going up each day so that's good. My red cells are at 81 which just about transfusion time again, they transfuse below 80. My white cells are at 0.2 again and hopefully will start rebounding in the next week. They have to come up to a certain level before the next chemo cycle. I feel good though and am excited because mom is coming from BC today to stay with me for a few days. I am also sad though because Melissa is going home today until Tuesday then she will be back. She's lucky because she gets to see the boys for the weekend.

To my classmates today, I am so proud of each and everyone of you and I wish I could be there with you. Enjoy the day and embrace it! Congradulations to each one, be blessed and remember this is your day and make it what you want! I will see you all soon.



  1. Congratulations Colin! This is your day as much as it is that of your classmates. My hope for you is by staying where your health and well being is best taken care of, that you will be able to join your fellow recruits in a long career in law enforcement when you are well.

    To clarify...I’ve known the Motz’s since 1981...and Melissa was the flower girl in my wedding when she was three!

    Take care,

    Marina Cumming

  2. In a way, Colin, you were with us today - in our thoughts throughout the day. You have every reason to be proud of your accomplishments as well, congratulations!

  3. Colin, I just watched the TV clip from your grad, where you were missed. I know it's hard -but like you said, it's important to get well. Thinking of you with love,
