Busy Girls!

Jessica, who had two weeks off work during this whirlwind journey, is back to work.
Much going on... so there has been no update.

Let me just say, I have been home a week. I have gone in and out to Out Patient @ VGH 3 times.
My numbers are all dropping. My white blood count was ".2" on friday!! The Doctor said getting closer to "0" is basically where I am, at the bottom. My white count will begin to climb again for maybe a week. Then I start a new chemo drug on April 28- May 12 every day. That will drop my counts back down again. They did give me a "platelette" transfusion on sunday.

I am mostly well, other than tiring out easily. My fingertips are all buzzing and tingly due to the Vincristine. That will go away when I am done this chemo. I am not handling any acidic food.
I have just a small amount of a rash on the inside of my mouth. This is the easiest gateway for germs to get into my bloodstream, If i cut myself when brushing... SO, the oral hygiene is very rigid. Three meals a day, brush and gargle with something they use to treat "gingivitis"!! no eating between and be very careful!

Thank you for praying!! YOU BLESS US !!
