Warning: not a good update
Apologies, apologies for not updating sooner. It's been a hard week and a half with good days and bad days. My mouth sores were seeming to get better last week then Friday they started getting worse. Another sore popped up in my throat yesterday but it has felt better today. They switched my antibiotics around , so that may have been the reason for the sores to get worse, so we've switched medications back and again upped my pain medications so hopefully it will get taken care of.
As I said last time the Revlimid didn't have an effect on my leukemia. However, going back on the Hydrea has brought my white count down again into the single digits. This is good but we do not know how long the Hydrea will continue to work.
We had a talk with Therese and Dr. Rizzieri and they really feel any more treatments would cause more harm than good to my quality of life. So we're focusing on keeping my energy level up with red blood cell transfusions, controlling pain, and praying that the Hydrea works for a good amount of time.
Right now mom and I are having fun watching movies and Law and Order reruns. My aunts (Mary Beth and Genie) are coming this weekend so that will be nice.
Today has been a good day and I'm sure tomorrow will be too! Thank you all for your support through the last year and half - I cannot express that enough.
