Life at home is busy, to busy in fact to let me have a chance to get on the computer. I awoke early this a.m. and no one else is awake yet so I hopped on and caught up on my emails, etc.
Things are going well, last Friday my oncologist said that my blood counts achieved official remission status, and they are stable and rising each blood draw. I am feeling well, I get tired quick, but other than that feeling well and doing lots of normal things which feels great.
I go back to Moffit on Monday August 3rd for another bone marrow biopsy and then on Tuesday I have check ups with the clinical research team and the oncologist there. They are working on my appointment for Tuesday also with transplant team. Based on results of bone marrow, I will be admitted to hospital most likely Tuesday evening for 5 days of chemo, consolidation chemo, to keep me healthy and in remission. After I am done, if all is well I will be released to come home, where I will see my local oncologist and monitor my falling blood counts, get transfusions, etc. all at home, with hopes to stay infection and fever free and stay out of hospital here. Once I get back I will be laying low when my counts are low and hanging out at home only to stay healthy.
The kids are doing wonderful, busy as always. We been trying to do lots of fun things and it is wonderful to see them just having fun. Sofia and Christian have become great swimmers, deep end and all. Last night we took them to YMCA swimming and Christian got to go on the water slide they have in deep end all by himself, over and over, he loved it. Even Olivia is doing well with the water and had a ball.
Thank you for all the continued positive thoughts and prayers, we have a long road ahead of us with the next chemo's and then transplant, but are enjoying this down time right now until next leg of our journey begins.
