Happy Hump Day

Just got a call from my primary care physician and she said everything looks good. All of my blood work came back normal and all's well. The GI said that my white blood cell count is dropping (on purpose) and I'm at a level now where it shouldn't get too much lower but he still wants to double my dose of meds over the next two months. I don't see how we can double my meds and not see a significant decrease but I guess we'll see how it goes. So two more months of weekly blood work and more meds. Fabulous. The good news is I'm feeling pretty good right now. I've been eating very well, avoiding gluten at all costs, and as far as my stomach is concerned, things are getting better. The only thing I'm struggling with is the extreme fatigue. I'm definitely not getting enough sleep! I do need to step it up in the exercise department, I think that might help with the body aches. Anyway, things are getting better, I'm feeling a little more positive.

I'm glad you like your pcp; it seems so difficult to find a doctor who actually gives a crap.

You were missed at kickboxing! We did a lot of leg work, so my legs are a bit sore now. And I have a feeling Steve missed you too :)
