Good News

Day + 18 Health Score 81

They told me that once I was out the the hospital going to the ITA for follow up, I would need to be patient and expect to wait. They were right. My labs were drawn at 10:00 AM and because of a computer glitch, we did not have any results until 2:00 PM. But it was worth the wait. My platelets were 99,000 (the goal is to be above 50,000) My white count is 9,000. I am back to normal. They were quite amazed at the rapid rate of my recovery. The Hickman catheter was removed! If my labs remain stable through Thursday, we will leave beautiful downtown Palo Alto and go home to Lincoln. Iwill see Barbie tomorrow and hopefully tonight will be the last night that we are apart. Every day just keeps getting better.

Dear Kevin, that is GREAT news! I am so happy you are doing so well. Wow you are amazing! I'm so glad I have you to watch and see what I will experience. I'm not afraid! I want to get going and be healthy. I want to begin living my "new normal life". I like the way you refer to our lives as the "new normal life". Oh Kevin, keep up the good work and I will pray for you that home is just a day or two away. Say hi to Barbie. Everyone wishes you a speedy recovery and send their prayers. love, Debbie Douglas
