On the other hand the Revlimid did not work in lowering my white count. In fact, it shot up to 30! (normal is 3.2 - 9.8). So this must not be the drug for me. Dr. Rizzieri put me back on Hydrea hoping to get this count down again. Like I said in my last post there is a drug he wants to put me on which is similar to the STA-9090 (a protein inhibitor) that I was on at the beginning of this year. However, it will require a weeks stay in the hospital. This doesn't totally depress me because I know all the nurses and like the 9200 unit but a week away from my bed is not appealing. It also makes it harder on Michael and Mom when I'm in the hospital. (I'm a very spoiled in that I do not like hospital food and so mom or Michael bring me my meals plus I still don't like staying there by myself at night.)
My only other problem right now is just being incredibly weak. My legs have very little strength and I am having trouble with balance when I walk. Mom and Michael make me hold on to them whenever we walk anywhere.
Hope you all have a wonderful week,
