Weekly Counts and Dosage Update

WBC: 2.9
HCT: 33.5
PLT: 161

When Dr McGee saw that Tyler's counts had dropped this week, he decided that we needed to drop Tyler's dosage yet again. I guess he also signs of increased toxicity in Tyler's liver too, so he needed to play with the amount of drugs flowing through Ty's system.

Anyways... He's down to 80mg of Sprycel now, so we'll hope that dosage is the right one to fight the Leukemia.

I started the month of March off with a good result for my blood counts. My white blood cells are steady. My platelets are still rising slowly, and my red blood cells which were very low and causing me grief........have risen to 36.4 % which is the highest theyve been since last fall!! I am feeling better every day, and look forward to hopefully playing soccer come spring time.

The doctor has given me the okay to go back to work full time, and I am feeling stronger every day. Besides work, to stay active Ive been playing a few rounds of golf with my brother, dad, and Dave.

I hope all of you are doing well!

Take care,
