Yippee Yi Yo Yi Yay.....

Two bits, four bits, six bits, a dollar.......all for Jan's Platelets, stand up and Holler!! As you can probably tell I went to Dr. Nair today and had the usual bloodwork done, and lo and behold, the platelets are comin in at 107! Last week as you'll recall they registered a lousy 71 on the platelet report card, having been in the hundreds since I had been home. My oh so smart doctor, thought it may be the the medication to prevent shingles, and that's why he makes the big bucks folks, he was right! That's a heavy load off my mind to have them back at somewhat closer to the normal range. So I'm to stay off the meds for another week, and see what the numbers are then. If they're still OK then I'll start back on the med, taking it once a day instead of twice like I had been doing. All in all, whites are still a bit low and so are the reds, but nothing to get concerned about, just the normal fluctuations we expect. So yay for my platelets......way to go little guys :) And yes, I do talk to my body quite alot......trying to be as complementary as possible, but when I have an issue with it, I am diplomatic but forceful about correcting itself. Somebody has to keep this Multiple Myeloma in line! Well, just wanted to give you the latest result. Now I'm gonna go pack for my weekend in Gainesville, to see my baby graduate from the #1 Party School!! I wonder if that's written on the diploma anywhere? I'll read it carefully and let you know :)

Jan, you are a real inspiration for me. I will be having a transplant in September. I was diagnosed in Febr and am very lucky that mine was caught before any damage had been done to bones or kidneys. You have such a great attitude. This certainly tests inner strength.
