It is Sunday and I am feeling better

Hello Everyone,

The fevers are definitely going in the right direction. Although I spiked a fever in the night and we quickly added Tylenol and fever was gone.

I am not in pain but still need to rest.

The CT SCAN showed that all the lymph nodes are normal or very close to normal which is very good.

I am scheduled for a Bone Marrow Biopsy on Monday which will tell us why my blood counts are not recovering. Once we get that piece of the puzzle figured out I will have a clear direction on next steps.

It is pretty funny not having hair because my body is used to regulating my temperature but with out hair is seems I am slightly cool or hot. Tammy brought me Craig's skull cap which works to regulate the temperature.

I ask everyone to continue pray for no fevers, no infections, and increased blood counts.

Thanks for checking in,
