As a community of friends, I believe all our best wishes and hopes will be gathered together into a huge bundle of healing energy. Hang in there, it sounds as if you've had some good news with the sibling matches.

Dear Rebecca:  I'm so sorry to hear about the scary things that have happened, but I do feel you are being watched over constantly and there is tremendous prayer power being directed to you, by a multitude of people! I feel sure everyone who has been praying for you all along, will intensify their prayers now!

Love
Betty Lou

UPDATE  Hello everyone!  Just got back home today from another week in the hosp.  Went in with a 102.9 fever.  My cell counts were very very low, and miraclously on the day my heavy duty methotrexate was to be given, my cell counts doubled and they ended up keeping me on track.  So wow!

I'm hoping that the rest of my testing and stuff stays on track.  I get to go back tomorrow to the hosp and get a wonderful b-day gift. Lab work done, pulmonary function test, and (hopefully not) while I'm there maybe a 4 hour red cell transfusion.  But I'm hoping my count will go up instead of down I can avoid the 4 hour longer stay!

   They're looking at admission to Rush in Chicago Sept. 27th if everything stays on track.

So please keep me in your prayers!

Well, seems after all I won't be staying out of the hosp.  Tomorrow is the day of my cancer benefit and I'll be going through a PET Scan and when I'm done with that dropped off at the local hosp here to have an 8 hour red blood cell transfusion.

Should be able to come home though, but my cell counts are going back down due to the long 6 hours of chemo I had on the 8th.

Please pray for us and the cancer benefit that all turns out well. Lots of people donated items and we're hoping and praying for a good outcome.

Thank you!

Thanks Deer.  I'll have to give her a call.

I will be going back in the hosp. tomorrow for another 8 hour round of chemo. I was put on a new chemo pill and it's playing havoc with my system.  My brother came out and has a sinus infection, my son is sick with upper respiratory, and I wasn't feeling good to begin with.  I hope I don't pick this junk up.  

I just feel so crappy, and the doc isn't listening.  Grrr.  "it's expected"  No! it's not.  

Ah well, I'll give her a call and see how she's doing.  Thanks for the note deer.

UPDATE

My bone marrow transplant or stem cell transplant actually will be put off for at least another month. The incision on my lower spine I had in June still hasn't healed.  

I've had a ortho-spine specialist out here taking care of it because Chicago's a 2 hour + drive for me each way. So when I had appointments with others out there the original surgeon agreed to squeeze me in and take a look the wound that's not yet healed since June. Well I went in, and his nurse came in, and he was in the room next to me, and he never came in.  However, he did call the transplant people and told them I was fine to go ahead with transplant.

GRRRRR!!!  When I talked with my transplant doc I told them this, they weren't very happy as he himself had already seen the incision. He decided NO WAY, so pushed off another month or so to see where were at.  So until then, it's tide me over with chemo.

My thoughts continue to be with you.  My husband will be starting chemo and radiation in the next week or so.  It is all such a long and waiting process...I wish you the best!

Dear Rebecca:

I'm so sorry to hear of this delay in your bone marrow transplant.  I can't even imagine how hard this is on you. When you have a date to shoot for, you tend to really pin your hopes on it.  Hope they can get the incicsion to heal in this next month so that there will be no more set-backs. I am thinking of you and saying prayers every day.

Hope your brother and son will both be well soon.

Love
Betty Lou

Becky,
Lots of prayers being sent for the healing of the incision so the bone marrow transplant can be done. I know this must have been a big dissappointment for you with the delay and all, but hang in there girl!

Was told my PET Scan came back clean. No sign of the tumor on my lower spine. So it would seem the chemo is working.  They're tiding me over until my incision heals.

That's good news, but I sure do feel like hell. Not sure if I have strep or something, sure haven't felt good. Seems one or the other of my kids have come home sick since school started. My oldest daughter now sick. I've seemed to do well as far as not getting it, but this time, I sure got something.
