Hi! I just wanted to let you all know that my niece Chelsea, Val's daughter, is in labor right now. I thought I would tell you, because many of you know Val. Please keep her and the baby in your prayers. This will be Chelsea's first baby.
On another note, I thought I would give you a quick update on John. He's doing alright. He says he feels pretty good. He still has the kidney problem. Actually, we will go to Hershey on Monday to find out what his Creatinin level is. Just a one day stay. So I can tell you more then. One thing that I am not so pleased about are his white and red blood cell counts. They have plummeted. He had been getting shots regularly to keep both counts high, but didn't get them for one week because he had toenail surgery. Now his white cell count is so low it is kind of dangerous. But it has been this low before, so he will just wear his mask everywhere. He will also have to continue getting shots for his white and red cells. I am kind of disappointed. His scores were SO high, just a little over a week ago. I thought his body was doing this on it's own. Now that the shots have been removed, I see it is all artificial. He just plummets right back down. When is his body going to start acting right on it's own? At least it has been a month since he has had to be hospitalized, and I thank God for that!
I have a question for you all.
Here goes. Would you all like to see a short write up, actually, mostly just photos, of the last time John was hospitalized? The time we were there for two months. I kind of wanted to include them in my journal because they are a part of John and my life. But you may just want me to move on. Or I could put them in my private journal (John's Journey With MDS).
Please let me know in the comments. You can say: show them, move on, or post in your private journal.
I love you guys! Krissy :)
