It's not officially my re-birthday until September 7, but today I had my one-year check-up, and except for the many holes I had poked in my body, I'm doing very well. My counts are all normal. My doctor, who's as buttoned-up and professional as they come, actually gave me a hug. I'd have preferred a deep tissue massage, but I settled for what I hope is my final bone marrow biospy, #14.
In addition to the lab extracting 16 vials of blood, I was given 3 immunizations. I ache all over, but I intend to go outside and garden anyway, because the doctor says I CAN!!!
I will report the results of the biopsy here in 10 days or so. In the meantime, come see me over at Word in the Woods
