Kelly here for another quick report. Jeff had his blood tests on Monday and his counts are still very low. He's going in again today (Wednesday) to have more tests to see if they have gone up at all. In the meantime, he continues to take his shots to increase his counts and it sounds like the doctor will just keep monitoring him until they are back up where they need to be to start the next round of biochemo. He is still very fatigued and spends most of his time sleeping or resting on the couch in the apartment. He occasionally reads the paper or a magazine, but, for now, prefers to read things that are "mindless and light." (Which, ironically, is the name I have selected for my autobiography!).
So, please send him best wishes for a quick rebound so that he will have the energy and immune system necessary to have fun with the kids when they come visit on Saturday. And, it isn't too soon to start praying for good scans on April 10th so that Jeff can continue with the biochemo for two more rounds.
Because I have little else to report about Jeff at the moment, please forgive my self-indulgence as I share the latest news about ME! I saw the OB yesterday and he approved one more trip to Houston. When I return, I'll be 36 weeks along and we agree that any trips to Houston beyond that point are ill-advised. However, he does not believe that I am at risk for pre-term labor and is confident that because I had three other full-term babies, this one will follow suit and come along as planned and not too soon. In other words, I will probably have the baby on the airplane on Saturday. (Tee hee!)
So, until my next update, take care and Thank You all for your continued prayers!
