Great news Beckie, and do take care as you are so right, this is the season for catching whatever is floating around.  What a relief for all of you this is, your prayers were answered that is for sure.

Dear Rebecca:

Good to hear from you and the news about your test coming back clean is wonderful.
Hope you get over whatever is bothering you very quickly.  Maybe you should wear a surgical mask during flu season?? It might keep you from catching all the bugs that go around.

Still saying daily prayers for you and your family.

Love
Betty Lou

Thank you all!

Actually Betty I do wear a surgical mask.
Especially when someone is sick, or my counts are down.  I went and saw the doc today and most of my not feeling well are the side affects of the new chemo they have me on.  However, he took me off one antibiotic and put me on another for strep.

So hopefully that should clear up one problem.  

Thanks for the prayers everyone!

UPDATE

I'm in my consolodation stage of chemo.
I skipped one of them cause I just couldn't take it. I did 3 out of the 4 of them, and it made me so sick I said no way to #4. So they gave me a break. I will start again this Mon. after a weeks break.

They're tiding me over until I can get in for my stem cell. The hole in my back is very close to being closed. This week as a matter of fact I believe it will close. So I am assuming by next week I will be going in for surgery and my stem cell transplant.


I see the orthopedic doc on Thurs so I should know more then. I'm sure he'll okay it to go forward.  So I'll let ya know more then.

You know Rebecca, for what it is worth you are sure teaching me what strength really is, and if I ever need it I will be thinking about you as my mentor.  You taught that you know yourself better than anyone and I am also learning through this, that I better start listening to me as well.  Here is a bit of a squeeze from me for this coming week, it sucks I know, it really does.

Ok, so far today they tell me they will admit me on the 17th at 5 am. Between 7 & 9
I will go through my 1st dose of radiation.
Then before my next dose between 3 & 5, I will be sent through surgery to have another central line placed in the right side of my chest. (at least they'll almost be matching )

If I'm lucky, I'll make it home by Christmas.  I will try to move it up some so I can be sure to be home by then, but God's in control.  

Continue in prayer for me please.
Love and Hugs to all!
God bless!

Here's another update for you all.
I've been very dizzy for weeks. I pushed and pushed about it and they ordered an MRI.
Thank God they did that!

I just got home from Rush and called back there to get the results of that MRI. I have something called leukoencephalopaphy...(plaque) on the brain. It lit up white all over.  Doing total body irradiation could cause serious damage to my brain.

So they won't do the radiation, they'll just hit me with 5-6 days of chemo.  I will be admitted on the 16th instead of the 17th and should go through the stem cell transplant on the 24th of November.

So now all this scares the hell out of me.
Please pray that God protects me. If I don't have my mind, and my faculties about me, then I don't really want to be around.

Please pray for guidance for me.

Becky, you continue to show such strength!  God's hand is in that strength, you know.  My Mom had a theory - sometimes we have to be used as guinea pigs...in order to help others.  

And then of course we feel more like a bull's eye...target practice and all...

Becky, girl, you have my on-going prayers that you will get through this and you will come out on the other side of this, and I feel this because...you're still feisty as all get-out - insisting that they look into things when normally they would say "they know best."  

Keep rattling those cages, dear...

you've got the right stuff to do it!

Dear Becky:

What a good thing that you kept insisting there was something going on to make you dizzy.  I feel that God was with you and saved you from a horrible mistake if they had done radiation.

I am leaving on the 14th for a week, to help our daugher move, but I will be praying for you as usual and will intensify those prayers until well after the 24th. You are in my thoughts every day and I know you are going to come though this!

Love
Betty Lou

Good news?  well, yes I guess so...?

Not sure who to believe so here it is.
Rush called me back to tell me the transplant doc took my MRI's to a neuro specialist radiologist. This guy says there are some spots, but he doesn't think its
"plaque".  He thinks it should resolve itself in a month or so.

So I sure hope he's right...but still no radiation just in case. (that part is wonderful news to me )

Hello all! Wanted to let you know that I'm in the hosp. and went through my surgery.
They didn't put me under which I was thankful for that with everything else going on and all.  Came through that and they started me on chemo that night at 10.
So I've been doing that every 6 hours and they're giving anti seizure meds which I was allergic too. They changed that and I seem to be doing okay so far.

I will be transplanted on the 24th.  
Love and hugs

Look to your shoulder sweetie, as I know there is an angel there with you, I just know it.    This has to be a test, only a test, and it will be over before you know it, and you will have passed it with flying colors.  My thoughts are always with you, always.
