It's been about a week since I've written. I hope I haven't concerned you all too much. It has just been too crazy around here to write.
This past weekend John and I went on our Marriage Encounter Weekend. Let me say that if you haven't done it, you should consider it! Want to find out more about it? To get to the American site click here. To view the UK site click here. I won't say much about it, because I don't want to spoil it for anybody, but it was so beautiful. You learn a communication technique, and you continue it after you leave the weekend, so it is definitely not a waste of time to go.
Okay, continuing on with the topic of why I haven't been on the computer much. I got myself a mean case of bronchitis. I feel I am kicking it though. I am on the Z-pack and am no longer contagious.
Which is a very good thing. Because John has almost no immune system. His WBC has fallen to 0.8 and his ANC is 0.2. This is as low as it has been since after his transplant. Dr. Claxton is trying to figure out why. We are going to have to go back to Hershey on Wednesday (instead of in March, like originally planned). We may stay for a day or two, or we may stay for two months. It is too early to tell.
This recent problem with the immune system presents two problems. Without the immune system, you can get infections that can kill you. Then the other problem is that the medical professionals have to figure out what is causing the immune system problem in the first place and treat it.
How am I doing? Tired, tired, tired. Trying to clean the house in case we have to stay in Hershey for awhile. While at the same time trying to remember to do the most important things - which are spending time with John, having time for myself, and spending time praying to God.
How am I doing emotionally? Well, at first I was panicky, but after talking to certain friends and family members (you know who you are!) I got perspective on certain things, and I am ok now. Thanks for the help. you all are great. :)
Well, I had better go for now. Love you all, Krissy :)
