Bad news

Got bad news today… my blood stats that have been stable for so long took a plunge.  A significant plunge.  I am so fricking upset.  It just screws my life up.  Puts the trip to Scotland in jeopardy cuz I may be dealing with chemo resistant AML.  This just sucks.  Still won’t know anything for sure until February 6th’s test and the 2 to 3 weeks to wait for the results.  But this is so not a good sign.

Took 45 minutes to get my blood taken and the test run.  Something that should take 15 minutes or so.  Plus the new girl didn’t know that if I don’t see a nurse or doctor I don’t pay the 50 dollar copay and she was dense and it took me a half hour to explain it to her and I still don’t think she understands.  Oh well, I didn’t pay and I’m not going to pay.

The next blood test is at Mayo on the morning of February 6th.  Right before the bone marrow biopsy.  Should be interesting if my platelets drop much further they’ll be pumping platelets into me as they do the biopsy (has happened before).

I’m upset and I’m scared.  Amazing what one little CBC can do to a person.  Totally screw up their day.

Mom and Jim are on their way.  Should be here in a couple hours.  What was supposed to be a joyous occasion is gonna be one full of fret from me.  DAMMIT.

Short post.  Nothing else to say.

I am 50 year old guy, who beat blood cancer but is getting his butt kicked by bone marrow cancer. At this point it appears I am dying. Married and in love with the most wonderful woman in the world (27 years). She has stood by me thru a lot of crap and I love her so.
