Well, the days of stable counts are over for now.  My WBC’s, RBC’s and platelets are all down and requiring transfusions to sustain me.

The doctors are puzzled, so  I am having a bone marrow biopsy on Wed. to see what is causing the change and to suggest a treatment plan.

This is so weird.  It may be my auto immune disease or a new disease.  Time to find out what we can do to get this back under control.

I feel ok and I look fine according to everyone who see me.  But, something is happening and it is time to find out what!!

I had a great visit with my son from CA over the weekend.  And I’ve had great talks with my daughter and news she’ll have another business trip here in Jan.  They both have taken time to visit and support me!!  I’m so lucky to have them.  Family definitely helps! :)

    I don’t think I like “down” being where it’s at! Let’s hurry and make “up” where it’s at!

    Sandy, I know that all of this waiting is so hard. Remember that “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Phillipians 4:13). I usually pray that as “I can’t, you can”.
    With love and continued prayer for your healing,
    Cindy and Dick

    Sandy, Hope you get better and the med. team find treatment.
    Good to hear you feel and look fine. That´s really important and life… isn´t it.
    Good to hear Greg and Kerstin is there.

    Send loving greeting from me and mamma and pappa.

    Visited them friday and we watched photoes from Ca and you and Peter and us singing and Sandy as a meremaid and the Redwoods.

    Remember??
    Love
    Eva

    I’m sorry counts are going down, but you need to keep looking up! I love you and miss you and hope you have a good weekend in St. George. I’m praying for you and the doctors!
