Update - Who's Got Platelets!

Hello Everyone,

I do! Well, I have some platelets that is! I am still low but my platelet level increased this week and I am very happy to tell you that I am now at 33 (normal is 150 to 300).

The goal is to get above 50, at a minimum . I have been taking a drug that is helping to increase the platelets while decreasing the immune system. It appears to be working!

We still have not found a perfect match but continue to rely on God to provide a cure in his time not mine.

I am still walking and trying to get myself into better shape. I want to get buff! :)

I just thought I would share the platelet news.

Still need more but moving in the right direction!

Thanks for you prayers and cards!
