I saw my local hematologist/oncologist last Friday. All is well. I don't have any numbers to post because I didn't see them. Chris was with me and had a look at the computer while we waited. According to him, my white blood cell count is 12 k/ul. That's down from 2 weeks ago and technically, the high end of normal.
Dr. B. said all of my numbers are normal and joked about my medication list looking like it belonged to a little old lady. It really does. I'm still on quite a few drugs.
My hair continues to fall out. It's gotten to the point that I can't cover the thinness with a well placed comb-over. I saw my stylist, Lydia yesterday and artist that she is, she cut it in such a way that there is the illusion of volume. I adore her.
Dr. B. thinks the thinning hair may be due to GvHD. My transplant doctor speculated that it was GvHD as well. I've been using a steroid topical solution on my scalp and have noticed that I'm not losing as much hair. I won't be able to see any new growth for 23 days. Until then, I'll continue in my quest for a certain real estate tycoon's comb-over secrets.
Chris's broken arm continues to heal. He has another appointment with the orthopedic surgeon in 2 weeks. He's getting more range of motion back, and able to do more for himself. Next week, he wants to try driving. I'm not so sure.
