Hi everyone! It’s Wednesday, the middle of the week. Hmmm…not much to report today, except that I had my second transfusion yesterday. My hemoglobin and platelets were actually above the cut-off, but they were close enough that I decided to have a bag of red blood cells and a bag of platelets to tie me over till next week. Again, no noticeable side effects. After the transfusion, Daniel asked me, with a grin on his face, if I felt full. “Idiot! I’m not a vampire!” I yelled at him. He shut right up. I guess that was a little funny : )
My WBC is waaayyy too low, so I’m trying to stay home and avoid crowds so I can avoid catching something. Gleevec is still working to control my leukemic cells. This I thank God every single day.
My next appointment with Dr. Yee is on Friday.
