True Moment Tuesdays: You Take the Good, You Take the Bad....

Update on my appointment...

I saw my Hematologist yesterday.  My blood work has not changed and I still remain anemic and have low blood counts.  I was certain that she would change my chemo, but she decided to leave it where it's at.  Basically, she said that my HES is more under control right now than it's ever been, so that's a huge praise!  The chemo is responsible for that.  However, it's also responsible for taking the good and the bad blood cells!  Right now we've decided not to change anything and to just wait it out and see if my body adjusts.  IF by some chance my counts continue to go lower then we'll look at changing things up.  Right now they're low, but acceptable.

At times I feel like the lady in the photo above...caught in a maze and not knowing what's around the corner or what turn to take next!  The good thing is that I have my family, friends and faith in the Lord to walk the maze with me.  Unlike the lady above...I'm not alone!  :)  So, I choose to carry on!  I may have to slow down a bit, but life has to be lived and I refuse to get caught in the maze of self-pity and fear.

That being said...I will be changing the way I post on this blog.  I know that I've already warned you on that!  Honestly, although I've thought a lot about it, I still just don't know what that will look like yet.  I do know that I can't catch every new deal out there and post them anymore...besides, there are several blogs doing that anyway. I hope that you'll stick around and ride out the new changes with me!
