Day 70 and what about posting updates?!?

I know I promised to be more diligent about updating this blog but what had happened…….:) I started to get so many spam saying they were reading my blog. I was kind of upset because I didn’t want just anybody reading it. It was meant for friends, family and those that may have the same …

Day 8 and hanging tough!

Yesterday was totally different from Day 6. I had to have platelets transfused because my platelet fell to 5!  I also had potassium and antibiotics. I also had a chest  x-ray to make sure there isn’t anything growing in my lungs!  So it was a long day!  I had a slight reaction to the platelets …

Day 6 and counting; Happy New Birthday to me!!!

Ok, ok!  I know I said I would give an update everyday but…….actually I was kept busy all last week.  I was in the clinic everyday at 8am  and sometimes wouldn’t leave until 5pm. Of course my brother had to go with me as well as they prepared him for his part in all this.  …

Humbly Grateful!

I have to apologize for not giving an update this week. It has been an uneventful week which is a good thing. Today, Friday, I had to have blood work done and basically I now have only 2 white cells left and not many more platelets but I have had no fevers or anything for …

Home Sweet Home

Shhh, it is a secret! I escaped today and if I promised to be good they would not send a posse after me. Thank goodness, it was a last minute decision my doctor made since so far I am not suffering real bad. But I think he was glad to get rid of me. I …
