Thursday started nice enough. Ted had an appointment with his bone marrow doctor. His labs showed that his counts are in the normal range....hooray for that. One test showed he had to be taken off one of the water pills for a few days. He will have a lab work here in Tipton and the results will be faxed to Dr. Tandra at the bone marrow clinic. They will call to let us know when to resume that water pill. Ted's hemoglobin is 8.8 , it should be between 13 and 17. We feel things are looking up.
Last week there was a free ice cream fair for cancer survivors. The nurse said Ted's doctor went to the little treat wagon twice. LOL.
When my daughter Liz sent this picture to Ted and I , we talked about it with pride. It's our granddaughter Emma at her job. She works at a little sandwich shop in her town.
This picture did indeed make me cry. Emma , my little crafting buddy, baking pal, over night slumber girl, is giving a thumbs up pose.....she just got her beginner's permit to learn to drive. Where did the time go? I feel time is cruel in many ways. We can never get it back. Please hang on to your children and grandchildren tightly....they are growing up .
Oh yes, this picture made me almost want to cry...but what can one do??? Our AC gave out and with Ted having a bone marrow transplant we are not allowed to use fans...we have to have AC, so this is the new unit put in two days ago.
Our household luck is as bad as it can get. New roof, new water heater, a furnace repair in the month of Feb. and now a new AC unit. The household account is running out.
We are just so thankful to all of you for your healing prayers. I will keep you posted about what Ted's next lab work shows. He is still low on energy, but the lab counts should start to change that soon. Sure hope so. Thank you everyone for the prayers. Blessings. XO
