Back Home!



Hello Everyone,

We made it back to Novi! It took a bit longer than expected but we still arrived on Tuesday night back at the old homestead!

I was delayed because my pesky Platelets and Hemoglobin decided to drop on my last night, so I had to get a bag of platelets and 2 units of blood before leaving OSU! Good News is that I have begun to go longer periods of time without needing supporting blood products which means my body is beginning to support itself again. The doctors believe in a few weeks my blood numbers should bounce back.

As you might have guessed based on the posting time of this note I am not sleeping as soundly as I would like but hopefully that will improve.

Thanks again for keeping me in your prayers!

and thanks for checking in,

Gary

Gary, Glad that you made it home safe. We will say some more prayers that those pesky platelets and hemoglobin behave themselves. I did notice the time, hope you get a nap in today. Enjoy your day. The Odell's, Mikah says GO BLUE!!

Gary, we are so glad you are home again. God bless all blood donors! Here is something you could do on your blog: post a link to GoodSearch.com where any search or shopping done through the site results in a contribution to a selected charity. The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society has raised thousands of dollars as a result of web users doing what they do anyway. The site works as well as most search engines. Shopping online through GoodSearch is even better because the site offers coupons and takes a decent percentage of the purchase for your selected charity. You don't pay a cent extra. Try it!

Good luck and blessings to you.

Donna and Bill
