Hi everyone! After yesterday's depressing post I wanted to post some positive results. My white count dropped from 22.5 yesterday to 15.8 today!!! So something is working to control my Leukemia. This is a big relief for me.
I went to clinic again today to get more IV antibiotics and a treatment. The chemo treatment actually consists of two shots. They can give them in my arms or stomach and so far I've had two in each arm. However, my arms are getting sore so tomorrow I will probably get them in my stomach. I was nervous at first when they told they would be shots because the only shots I could remember having were tetanus and neupogen which both hurt. I hardly felt these little shots, the site just get sore later.
I'm still having some back pain which is controlled very well in clinic through IV Dilaudid however my oral medication doesn't cut it quite as well. They are working on adjusting my pain medications so hopefully that will get better
Thank you to all of you who continue to pray for comfort and the for the effectiveness of these treatments, much love to you all!
