Happy Birthday to my Sissy Deirdre who was 40 yesterday! I love you, Honey!
Now about how John is doing...
We went to see Dr. Claxton's about a week ago. He decided that John would have one more chemo treatment and then have four weeks off. After the four weeks is over, Dr. Claxton will evaluate whether or not the chemo has worked (cured the Hemolytic Anemia). If it has not, then John will get the spleenectomy. So it is a waiting game, it looks like.
John has already finished his chemo treatments. Dr. Claxton will determine how successful the chemo treatments were (whether or not he is cured) based on how many blood transfusions John will need during the next few weeks, and on his counts. We are anxiously waiting to see what will happen. Meanwhile, I am going to read up on the internet on spleenectomies. If anybody has a good site, please let me know.
A little about myself...
I got a haircut! I really like it. Now I have a new hairstyle to go with my new glasses and clothes. Yes, I know, I keep meaning to take pics. I guess this year I am really doing a lot for myself because I went a whole year without doing anything for myself. I am also losing weight. I will tell you more about that later, and how I am doing it.
Okay, that's about it. Love you all, Krissy :)
