I'm writing this from our home in Tennessee. My meetings with both sets of Doctors at MDA agreed that a break was needed and home would be the best place to be. My counts are slowly rebounding after the last chemo treatment. My AML has presented itself only on my head. There are times that I don't even know it's there but other times when it's actually pretty painful.
The new treatment trial that I had hoped to be included in was full. But a new vaccine clinical trial will begin in about 6 to 8 weeks and I'm on the list. The only drawback is that I have to be off of chemo for 4 weeks before the trial. This will be fine if the AML will co-operate and not flare up again. It's a big waiting game.
I feel ok right now. I haven't been out of the house for 3 days and that has helped. I'm missing a trip with Legacy Five and that has not helped. But I'm not down, I feel optimistic about all of it.
It's a time of testing and I hope to come through it refined as fine gold.
Other than all of the above, things are good at the Bennett house. I'll be in touch soon!
In His Grip!
