Well today has been a busy day. I got to the clinic and they informed me I had to go to Duke South to have a chest x-ray and EKG. So I had blood drawn and we headed over there. After getting back to the clinic I had a bone marrow biopsy... not too bad. Now I am getting a unit of platelets, some potassium, two units of red blood cells and a treatment. So I am keeping the nurses busy. The last two days I have been completely drained of energy so I was glad when they told me my hemoglobin and hematocrit were low. This means there was at least a reason for my tiredness and it wasn't just something "normal". I should feel much better after getting the red blood cells. I'm going back on Cipro for an antibiotic, I didn't feel great on this drug, but at least I didn't have the nausea/vomiting like the last two antibiotics. So hopefully this will be somewhat better.
Today's treatment starts my twice a week protocol so I will have another treatment on Friday. (We usually came on Tuesdays and Fridays anyway). I pray that the small side effects I have from 1 treatment a week continue to only be small side effects. Obviously we are also hoping twice a week treatments will have more of an affect on my Leukemia cells.
Michael and Matt are driving back from Indy today so wish them a safe trip. I think they had a great time. Matt did of course because Duke won and Michael being a UNC fan was just happy to be there.
Hope you all are having a wonderful week,
