Well; the time is here. I see Dr. O'Brien on March 12 and she will give me the script for Ibrutinib. I'm a little emotional right now as I had hoped to put it off as long as possible. My numbers as of yesterday, after only 30 days since last blood draw; off the chart. I says that because I've had blood draws the last three months straight and I can't believe in such a short time they could rise so much. I guess this is the nature of this beast. So, all of you out there that know what it feels like to begin treatment know how I feel. I just need a little encouragement right now. I'm thinking positive (actually I'm trying to not think) that Ibrutinib or a combination will bring my numbers to the normal range and I'll once again feel like I did two years ago. I really don't feel horrible, but lately the treadmill is being a challenge. Carole ~ Five and a half years since diagnosis.
