As promised, this is my after the doc visit update.
Well my bone marrow has not come back to life. Major bummer. So the doc is now in the process of settting up an admit to the hospital so that I can receive the needed transfusions. It will have to be an overnight stay. I so had hoped that my blood counts would have started to climb back up. But at least this way I will be able to start feeling a little better a little bit faster.
My doc said that he thinks I am at the halfway point in my recovery, or very close to it. I had hoped to be farther along but I'll take halfway over a quarter way. So I am moving forward, just really slowly.
He is concerned about the swelling and is thinking it may be either my liver or my heart. Not the kidney. So we have ruled out one and just have to narrow it down. My liver numbers are really low. This could be caused by malnutrition. He did an ekg and I will need to see a cardiologist next week. Also need to get an echo cardiogram, possibly I can get that done when I am admitted to the hospital.
So that is the latest news. Feeling kind of down right now. Sometimes I just feel like it's to much for one person. I want and need a break. But, it is what it is and I will get through this too.
thanks for always being there for me.
