Counts dropped again, looks like bubbles are in my future.

Bloodwork came back, and I dropped a little more in the immune system counts.  I believe that more bubbles will be in order.  I call them bubbles because the immunoglobulins as they go out form bubbles in the bottle.  But they will come right before my 7 day cruise which i am so looking forward to.  All is well, just need a little boost to fight the fight with.

All Clear yet again! Next checkup, 6 months!

475 days ago I went into remission from my second battle with Stage IV Non-hodgkins Lymphoma.  I have had two immune system crashes, and many months of immunoglobulins, AKA Bubbles, to help boost my immune system.  Today was my second 3 month checkup since stopping the bubbles.  I received an all clear, with no evidence of disease.  I am still waiting on blood work to see where the immune system counts are, but all indications are that things are going well.  If the counts are good, the onc has mentioned taking out the port, something that has been a symbol of all that I have gone though.  It doesn't hurt, just kinda sits there, and is the catalyst to my recovery.   Hope to get good news tomorrow, but for now, I am head to checkups every 6 months now.   Couldn't be happier.

I couldn't have done this without the huge support system I have and I will always iBelieve, and never give up.

The numbers tell it all

Had my 3 month check up today, initial counts are all good.  Calcium is still a little low, but just barely.  It will be a day or two before the immune system counts are in, but all indications are going well.  I have avoided the crud that many have been posting about and those I hear in the office.  So my plan is to stay away and not catch it, so as of today, everything is going great.  Next up is a port flush in 6 weeks, and in 12 weeks we will do a CT Scan to look inside and see whats up.

All is well!!

Didn't have bubbles to take a photo of, so I just grabbed one of the lab vials :)
