I am writing this post live from PMH. I’m getting 2 bags of blood today.
My appointment with Dr. Lipton was yesterday. The long-awaited PCR test results came back and it was pretty much the same as the previous PCR test results, so Dr. Lipton thought that was a good thing – at least things weren’t getting worse over time.
HOWEVER, the fact remains that there are still CML cells in my body. The first line of defense is to go back on Gleevec (which I already started last week) and hope that the meds will bring the CML cells down to “undetectable”. What if it doesn’t work? I guess I’ll cross that bridge when I get there.
So, that’s where I’m at right now. Still fighting. Still hoping. Still faithful. Still Winnie.
