Struck some nerves there with the text message..

Glad you are healing and your platelets are behaving, I was praying for Wolfen last night as I fell asleep. I pray that all goes well with them today.

GOD bless.

And to know that you are doing well. Your family has so much going on. I know this will ease Wolfen's mind some to know you are doing well. Glad to hear about your platelets. Prayers for you for a speedy recovery and success with resuming your chemo.

Soo good to hear from you and your doing better.   I know when I had that tooth extracted I had to wait a bit before they'd start the avastin again....they started the folfiri but held off on the avastin.

Glad to hear that things are looking up. Great that you've got this surgery behind you and are not having to deal with any complications.
