September 13, 2003


Our trip to the hospital today was uneventful. They did the lab work and told me to come back in 2 days. My WBC count took another huge jump, along with the Platelet count. My RBC and Hemoglobin counts are also up. The doctor took me off Mycelex and Potassium today also. I am only taking 3 Flagyl a day, the last one will be Monday morning. My next update will be on Monday.

On the medical front, the Mycelex has knocked down the thrush infection far enough that my own immune system can handle it, and my blood chemistry has been stable so I don't have to take the Potassium pill(H-pill) anymore. I am attempting to getting contact with City of Hope Hospital to schedule an appointment with them. My WBC count is high enough that I will probably have another Bone Marrow Biopsy next week. Either at Scripps Green or City of Hope. My doctor looked at my blood samples today and did not see any leukemic cells.
