Ok, after less than a week on the Hydrea and the Sprycel, my platelets are now 1, 200,000. In less than a week they have dropped over 600,000. I did find out today I can only take the two meds together for 2 weeks, so hopefully the higher dose of Sprycel beginning today will kick in so the Hydrea can be reduced and discontinued.
Today it doesn't matter, what is important is I am finally showing progress with the platelets, the sun is shining (if you look hard enough through the clouds) and I am responding to the meds. Today, is a good day.
Thanks everyone for your continued support. (Billie, you had better get your bet in, next bloodwork is Thursday, we might be looking at numbers below the million mark by then)
