As always you made me laugh. The day is not too long so far, and I plan on being at hospital at 8, when they open. Had a few mini meltdowns, but then I move on. Sucks to be human and experience uncontrollable emotions. There is to be a 'stat' on the blood work, so if it is to Pitt I have to head, it will not be half day waiting. I need wrinkle cream! I just am not willing to pay at least $65 for a bottle that is so small you need an eye dropper to apply.
Just think of it this way, if you grow two more heads, you will be three times as helpful and amusing. I think after you reach a certain age a scar is imminent, there is something to be said about youthful skin and elasticity.
I am concerning with the white count bottoming out, a few fellow supporters have noted this possibility also. What I know is it went from 26, to 16, and with 8 days on the Sprycel, it is at 8. There is not much room for movement before it gets too low.
Another thing they have me monitoring is blood pressure. When this first started, it was high, really high, then moved back down to my usual, which is low compared to others. I have a wrist cuff, it usually reads higher on one of those. Today it is hovering right around 110/70. Nothing to be too concerned about yet, but this afternoon it was 89/55, I slept through from noonish to three if memory serves, too tired to get off the couch.
Thanks for the reminder, we know what I have, and what meds should work, it is finding the correct dosage appropriate for me. May be higher or lower than the next person, finding the dosage is what takes time.
I spent a few unproductive times today thinking 'what if' but it is unproductive and annoying, Instead I am waiting for tomorrow, and if I have to do the procedure at least it will reduce the possibility of having a stroke because of the platelets. I think that is just as/more frightening than the CML right now.
Be careful puckering your lips, if you keep doing that, you will end up with more wrinkles, just in different areas!
