a roller coaster
tracked by blood counts


Iโ€™m heading into another downward loop health-wise right now and falling behind with other important duties, so I’ll be taking a couple of weeks off from blogging to catch up.

Thanks, Ron, for your haiku book, The Scarecrow’s Son, which arrived in good order yesterday. I’m going to enjoy reading these verses!

    • Thanks. It’s not a major woe, just that the results of last week’s blood test led the Cancer Clinic to bump up my April appointment to next month. I got the letter yesterday and can’t find out any specifics until Monday. And I don’t do “patient waiting” real well. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Thanks, Christine! I pray you’ll be feeling better soon. We’re doing fine here . We are going to get 8 inches of snow tonight!

    Write when when you can. We always look forward to hearing from you.


    • And we’re having one of our mildest winters ever! The usual week of -40 C/F we get after Christmas hasn’t come at all — which we’re very glad for. And we’ve less snow than we usually get in winter. Now I know where it’s going. ๐Ÿ™‚


    • Thanks Symanntha. I’m feeling better than I did in Dec, but as I replied to Kurt, getting an unexpected letter from the Cancer Clinic — which they must have sent off as soon as they got the results of my last blood test — makes me nervous. They’re bumping up my appointment and want another test.
      Now, when I get there next month I may find this was a temporary blip in numbers and my counts are back to what they should be. As I said, a roller coaster ride. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’d best keep busy meanwhile, but be prepared for wherever the tack goes next.


    • Actually, I started treatment in April last year and the last one was in September, so it’s five months and I had a “down time” for a few months after. The blood test results at my checkup in December were good and in January I really started perking up again. Hopefully my leukemic cells will be very slow in multiplying and I won’t need chemo treatments again for five or six years. Leukemia isn’t curable but can be treated successfully, thankfully. Thanks for asking.
