Good Evening! We still do not have any results from the biopsies on my legs - nothing has "grown" from them which is good. I am walking again by myself though - I lost about 10 lbs. in 2 days so I suspect fluid had just built up on my legs and I couldn't walk because of it. It is very nice to be mobile again. Everyone was so excited when I actually walked into the clinic today. A lung x-ray last week also showed a pocket of something which caused it to hurt when I took a deep breath. For this I went on steroids and it seems to have cleared up.
They have also cut my clinic visits down to every other day instead of everyday which is a huge relief. My platelets get down to 1 or 2 but they have to balance my mental health with my physical health and this schedule is doing that. I am still taking the oral chemo pill but my white count it creeping up a little but hopefully we can right this off to being on steroids. This weekend we had lots of visitors that wore me out but were so worth it! You have no idea how much you help my mental state.
The biggest news I guess is that all my hair has fallen out again. It's been growing for about a year so this is a little disappointing but a lot cooler and easier to take care of.
As always we can't thank you enough for your prayers and support.
PS - I also ask for prayers for Julie Kiefer's family. She had a transplant about the same time as I did but passed away this morning.
