Got a short one here today, but I figured it’s been long enough since the last update that people are curious with what’s going on with me. Down to 2 For the last 2 weeks, I’ve only had to go into the city twice a week, instead of three times a week. So that’s made […]

Movin’ On Up!

So, after having my white blood cell count hover around 0.2-0.3 for a few weeks, Thursday, we got a little bump. It bumped up to 0.5. Nice, but nothing great. Then Friday, it hopped up to 0.9. Now we’re getting somewhere. Saturday, it jumped all the way up to 1.4. Today? 2.0. Whaaaaaaat. Go baby […]

THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE….and…some left overs…but whatever those don’t count

Ok, so, since I haven’t been able to update my blog nearly as much as I had hoped, this short and quick bit of positive news needs some explaining. So, after nausea-town, I actually started to feel ok for a few days. And then, not. I spiked a 39.5 C fever (~103 F) that basically […]

And So It Begins…began?

I meant to publish this post after getting my Hiccman cather placed. Then, I intended to post it after I woke up the next day. Then I wanted to post it…and things kept moving it back and back and back. Well, let’s get back on Track, shall we? I’ll start from the┬ábeginning. Hiccman Catheter Placement […]

Scary Stuff Un-Related to Halloween

Right, so, I mentioned scary, heavy topics to discuss. Well, time to discuss them. But first, for those of you reading this from the East coast, I hope that everybody is safe. So far, I’ve dropped power for about 10 minutes, and lost internet for another 20 minutes or so. All told, I’m getting off […]

Really Long Day at MSKCC

This’ll be a short post. I have a lot more to share than what’s getting put up here, but I’m pretty shot today. And I’m about to have a whole lot more free time on my hands starting Wednesday. Transplant Pushed Back In case you couldn’t tell by the lack of posts about it, I […]

I’m Back!

After quite the hiatus, I’m back, and ready to update everybody on all the things. Let’s get right to it, shall we? Recovering From Round 2 of Consolidation I’ve been laying low since getting out of the hospital from round 2. This consolidation seemed to take a bit more out of me than previous rounds. […]

Baby Fights

I’m back! Finally got to meet Dr. Barker, the stem cell specialist. She was absolutely awesome, and I loved her. She gave me a lot of info, and made me feel a lot more comfortable with the idea of stem cell. I’m still ┬ánot decided, but I’m feeling a lot better about things. The Nitty […]

Dreadful Hope

It’s been a while, hasn’t it? Well, I figured I’d stop by and drop some updates out there. Hospital Stay The last hospital stay was a rough one. First 2 days were rough because I could barely talk, couldn’t swallow, barely ate, and was just generally uncomfortable. Luckily, the antibiotics cleared up the fever and […]

Sixty Percent

It’s a difficult thing to hear that your chances of a 5 year remission are worse than a coin toss. When everyone around you has been so positive, the inner mathematician keeps whispering “those aren’t very good odds”. Granted, I’ve bet on worse odds. But still. What am I talking about? Well, just about all […]
