Good news, good news. My Friday labs were some of my best counts ever! Platelets were 228, an all time high. My white count was 6.3 with neutrophils of 5.09. The red count was down slightly, but that's still expected. It was 2.98 with hematocrit of 30 and hemoglobin of 10.8. Still I am not complaining. My bone marrow biopsy on Wednesday went fine and now we are waiting for results. Something else that came out of this is that I got to skip seeing the doc from this past Tuesday to this coming Wednesday. A whole week. This is progress!
Day 100 rapidly approaches. Besides seeing the doctor Wednesday, I have a whole slew of tests set up. Eye doctor, pulmonary, bone density, etc., etc., etc. I also think I am going to take part in a post transplant study on prevention of ocular GvHD. When the eye doctor sees me, she will determine if I am showing signs of getting it. If not, I'll do the study. Every day for a year I will put drops in my eyes in the morning and at night. I won't know if I have the real drug or the placebo. But it will be good to help out in this regard. So many people have helped me, it seems such a small thing to do in return.
Also on Wednesday (it will be Day 95) I am hoping they will tell me when I can go home. Thinking positively and keeping my fingers crossed!
