Chemo Round 2 Day 24

Today was another good day. I had my labs drawn this morning and my counts all went up. I did not have to get a transfusion! My neutrophil count is still only about 200 so I still cannot go out or have company. I have to get a blood count every day for at least the next 3 days or till my counts are high enough.

I did get my appointment in Chicago changed to January 3. Then I have my repeat visit at Barnes in St. Louis on January 9. Hopefully after that I will have enough information to decide how to proceed regarding the bone marrow transplant.

I have been able to spend the day with Teresa and the kids so it has been a good day. The boys and I played some board games this afternoon. Kim, Jeremy and Ian were here for dinner. We had "finger foods" tonight for supper. We usually have them Christmas Eve but we postponed it due to my being in the hospital. Everybody enjoyed it and we will probably play more board games tonight.

Teresa and I and the rest of the family want to thank you all for your prayers. I am convinced that prayer and the Lord's hand is what got me home for Christmas.
