Jumping For Joy
Blogsville didn't get excited over our new to us sofa and they probably won't be either over my health report . However I am, but I'm kind of afraid to get too happy, as I've been disappointed before. My blood platelets went from 13 as in 13,000 to 69. The Doctor thinks I was over medicated so when I start the treatments over two days after Christmas it will be five days in a row on a lower dose. MDS is a strange blood disease and I think my body is even reacting different then some who have it. I have felt well once I was able to deal with one side effect which I rather not mention here. One of the medications I took, which didn't work for me did make my fingernails grow. I've never in my life been able to grow long pretty nails. Now that I'm off it my nails are back to broken and ugly, but I can deal with that. Maybe most of you know healthy people have a count of maybe 200 or 300 as in 300,000. The doctor would like for mine to be at least 150 but 71 is as high as he has been able to get them. It is hard to explain since I didn't know anything about platelets before and still don't know a lot. I do research it and just get more confused or maybe in denial.
