High Chris.  Thanks for the update.  I hope you don't have to get a transfusion but if so, you will probably feel better :).  Sorry about the thrush - hopefully they gave you something to treat it.  Hang in there!

Warm hugs - Jim

Hi Chris,

 I can only imagine how ready you are for this to be over and to start feeling better again. I was so fortunate not to have any low blood counts. I know Vinny certainly had a hard time getting his blood counts straightened out. It will all come in time, but certainly doesn't come fast enough. Hang in there Chris, and thanks so much for checking back in. My prayers and positive thoughts are with you. Much Love, Sue (FNHL-2-3A-6/10-age62)
