Danger Zone

Hey all,

I'm back in the ol' "Danger Zone" for platelets.
23,000 today.

I meet with my hematologist this afternoon.

Over the phone, the nurse said, "Emily, don't despair. We still have plenty of tricks up our sleeve." I was getting a bit tearful, so it was a nice encouragement.

She said that Dr. Hook might suggest a maintenance dose of IVIG or Rituxan - every week or every other week.

I feel sad and mad.
But this life, right?
Happy times and sad times.
Thankful times and bitter times.
Hills and valleys.

I pray for trust and hope and healing.

And, the sweet refrain is echoing in my heart: "All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well."
