I've been buried under a load of schoolwork and have had 3 tests in the last 2 weeks. It's been brutal. As far as my health is concerned, all is well. I had a check-up with my local oncologist today and he gave me a clean bill of health. My chemistries are normal. My platelets are over 400 and my white blood cell count was 9.5 k/ul. That's the high end of normal. My weight is the same as it was at my last check-up 4 weeks ago, which means that I've lost the 2 pounds I gained right before my last MDA visit. I know that's a little confusing and I apologize.
Dr. B feels that the weight will come off quickly once I hit my stride. I reminded him that it took a year to lose 24 pounds last time. We'll see.
