Saturday Evening Update

Well, this has not been the greatest day. These N... shots are wreaking havoc on me. I have been aching so badly even my fingertips hurt. I've taken some pain pills to get it to somewhat bearable, but I understand now what people mean when they say the cure might kill you. I've tried to sleep most of the day, but I woke up a little while ago to sleet and snow hitting the French doors here in the bedroom.

I'm also disturbed to see I have a fever of 100.8°. For the next hour I'm going to watch it carefully and if it doesn't go down I guess I will have to call my doc and go to ER. Just the kind of weather I want to go out into.

Tomorrow out-of-town dish friends were planning to come visit me. Things are not looking good for that at all. My neutriphils are only 0.3 so I have to stay in the bubble. They said they would call me tomorrow when they were leaving Nashville, but I will try to get in touch with them before then.

This MDS is really cutting into things I want to do with my life.

Checked in with my computer this morning and noticed on my sitemeter you were up early. Sending a painless "air hug" your way.

I'm sorry, Becky...you've been such a trooper through this all. It's all right to have a good cry. Sending you a big hug...

Thank you all so much! I am feeling considerably better tonight. This morning I was still pretty achey, but improved as the day went on. This afternoon Mike drove me out to the farm and it ALWAYS makes me feel better to go out there. Sunshine and 55°, so it was a lovely day for it.

Tomorrow I go back to the doc and see how my counts are doing. Wish me luck!
