Small fever today, so pray it goes away. If it hits 100.5 I'm back in the hosp. That's not where I want to be.  I can't believe how tired I am, and how much I just want to get in the damn shower. LOL

Man, incisionions all over you can't get wet ya know.  Well, I guess par for course.

Guess I should just be thankful I'm still here.  Showers will come again.  

THanks for the continued prayers all!

Hello again.  Sorry guys.  Seems 12 hours after returning home I was once again admitted to the hosp.  My fever hit 102.1 around 3:45 in the morning.

I just got back home tonight and pray I can stay this time for a while.  I was gunned with heavy duty antibiotics for 3 days.

Thanks for the continued prayers!

Tomorrow, bright and early I will go into the doc's office for another round of chemo injected into the brain, which will go through the spinal cord as a preventative  measure.  The last experience with that was totally awfully, so to say the least, I DO NOT look forward to this at all.  He promises me it won't be as bad as last time.
I sure hope not.  Whatever it takes, whatever it takes.

Fever has stayed down so far. Thank you God for that.  Love ya, one and all!

Chemo went well today. I was blessed by having my Red Blood Cell count go high enough in a day to avoid another transfusion.  Man was I thankful for that.

So my counts are coming back up, and I'm feeling better.  Will go back to Rush Pres. in Chicago this week to confer about a Bone Marrow Transplant sometime soon in the future.  That's a 20 some day stay in the hosp. So prayers for my match would be greatly appreciated.

That's all I have for now thank you!

Short Update

Keep spiking fevers of 102. Thankfully, they've been able to keep from the hosp this week.  Was sent back to Rush yesterday to speak with a Hematologist. They did another bone marrow biopsy and some blood work.

The bone marrow biopsy will help to determine whether the cancer is out of the bone marrow yet or not and also to determine if there is a chromosone called the Philadelphia Chromosone which I'm hoping and praying is NOT there.
That would certainly make things harder in my case.  They were not able to determine this by the sample they had a month ago.

I'm not feeling too bad today, compared to the last few days have been rough.

If it comes back with the chromosone then another donor besides myself will have to be used. There is a medication they've been using to treat this but it's not shown to actually irradicate it, but suppress it.  So we'll have to see there.

That's about all for now. Please keep the continued prayers.

Dear Becky:

I am praying that you do not have the Philadelphia chromosone!  Also that you don't have  a long wait to find out! Waiting is hard!

Glad you are having a better day and is always great to hear from you.

Love
Betty Lou

UPDATE

My bone marrow biopsy came back clean! The cancer cells were gone. We're still waiting on the results of the "chromosone" though.
I will see the docs in Chicago again on the 4th of Aug. to talk about transplant.

However I will begin my 2nd phase of chemo here on Friday and have to have another MRI to check on the mass on my spine and see if it's gone or done anything as of yet.

But a little good news is better than none at all!

Well that little good news is sure great!  It is enough to start a huge ball of good news rolling, so good luck with this sesson, and let's hope it is also great news in August.  You were sure blessed with wonderful doctors as well I think.
