So we have had somewhat of a usual week here. I had a treatment on Tuesday along with infusions of red blood cells and platelets on both Tuesday and Friday. My incision site is healing well and probably will not even need to be packed much longer.
Michael and I made the trip to Matthew's basketball game at Emory and Henry on Saturday. It was nice to get out and do something normal but even something as simple as riding in the car wore me out. I feel my energy levels are decreasing with each treatment but hopefully this is just in my mind. I think I have two more treatments before the dosage of the drug will be increased. I'm optimistic that the higher dose will have more affect on the leukemia but a little worried that the little side effects I have from the current dose will become big side effects. (If any of my former English teachers read this please ignore that sentence if I misused affect/effect).
In other good news, the real estate agent found a renter for our house in Indiana. We would rather have found a buyer but at this point a renter with a 12 month lease gives us relief at the moment. The guy renting our house is the new associate dean of student affairs at Purdue so I wonder how he feels having two 25 year old grad students as his landlord.
Much thanks to all! Amy
PS - There was no illegal activity that led to my loss of internet. Just a faulty lamp, some sparks, and a blown power fuse. I don't have quite the exciting, undercover life that my South Carolina (planned) cousin does.
