43-The number of months since my diagnosis. Also the number of Richard Petty , the King of NASCAR.
7-Number of Daytona 500 wins by the King.

11.8-Latest hemoglobin. That's almost normal. My workouts have been going great, actually feel like I'm getting strong as opposed to just going through the motions.

100-The minimum number of people I'd like to get to join the bowl challenge. Here's the link. It's on ESPN Bowl Mania. Group is Tackle Myeloma. Password is myeloma.
