I feel like shit this morning but hey I’m alive

So I got about zero sleep last night. I couldn’t get comfortable and as the morning drew closer, the pain began to return. I’m in the waiting room at my doctor’s office right now. I arrived early because I’m hoping to God that I can get in early. I feel nauseated and I just want …

I wanted to share a bit of positive news tonight before I go to bed. This will be quick because I’m emotionally and physically exhausted.  The doctor called with Gavin’s lab results, and things have improved.  His platelets are at 160, his WBC count is 4.4, and his Neutrophil is 2.4. These are all movements …

Gavin’s really struggling with these side effects and it’s heartbreaking 

We’ve got to figure something out with these bladder issues because they are now constant and very rarely ever let up on him. Poor Gavin keeps apologizing for having to go to the bathroom over and over and over again.  I keep telling him that it’s not his fault and he needn’t apologize for it …

This morning was all about the bloodwork

After taking the Elliott to school this morning, Gavin and I had to both have bloodwork done.  Gavin’s bloodwork was related to his meds and other various health issues. Mine was just a followup cholesterol check before my next check up in a couple weeks.   Both of us had to fast and by the …
