I believe in “UP”

I have weekly blood tests.  I feel fine, as usual.  So how come my blood counts keep going down?  Even with the Neupogen, my WBC has gone down.  And so have my RBC’s and platelets.  The platelets had been fairly stable for about 5 months and they are going down and my transfusions help me about  5 weeks.  It’s only been 2 weeks since my last transfusion and the count is decreasing already.  I hope I make it another week.

My doctors say to expect the ups and downs.  I have another blood count on Wed. and am looking for the “UP” part of that advice.

  1. It was so good to see you the other day! You look so good it’s hard to believe your counts are going down. Keep concentrating on the ‘UP’ part! You’re always in my prayers – love you!

  2. We’re all praying UP becomes the standard for you Sandy! It was great to see you at the Aid Stations during the run. Thank you so much for being up there!
