Rising platelets

Steve's lab work today brought great news. His platelets are up to 116,000, enough in range to receive chemotherapy and Avastin on Wednesday!

His kidney stone pain has subsided as well. Last night was the worst. Even with lots of pain pills, his pain was 8 or 9 on a 10-point scale. If it had persisted any longer, we would have been visiting the emergency room for more powerful drugs.

His headaches continue. As we give thanks for rising platelets and no kidney stone pain, we pray for relief from his headaches.
