Day 19 - starting to trend upwards

Posted Dec 02 2009 5:21pm
Well after some really rough days, things look to be turning around. Today my WBC doubled and jumped up, which is a great sign that I am beginning to engraft. I am feeling a bit better, had two platelet tranfusions today which knocked me out a bit, but I had a restful day which I needed. Doc was in this am and pointed to early next week on the calendar and said I should be able to go home, music to my ears. My rash seems to be subsiding some and the swelling in my eyes and face is a bit better, to me it looks awful everyone else thinks it looks better. Eating and drinking are still proving to be hard to do, but I do my best and eat what I can.

Thank you for all of the uplifting thoughts and prayers and hang in there's, they made me smile and realize I could hang in there through this difficult patch and that the worst is just about behind me. I know when I get home the fatigue and exhaustion will hit hard, but to be able to sleep uninterrupted will be glorious, and to be able to see the kids all day long when I want will be great.

Steven and Mom had to go to a caregivers class that was mandatory before i leave the hospital, so they did that today, and now they are all set and know what to do, there are so many precautions we have to take.

Thanks for continued prayers - keep em' coming, I know they are helping to heal me.
