Hi, Telephone consultation with my haematologist this morning, rather stunning blood test results - haemoglobin up from 110 to 135 so now normal... white cell count up from 1.7 to 4.1 so now normal, neutrophils up from 1.2 to 2.4 so now normal, although platelets down from 138 to 106 so still not in the normal range.
That was my first blood test in 5 weeks, and as I've been feeling so much stronger and not getting at all breathless the last couple of weeks, I was expecting decent blood results, but these have rather astounded me. Looks like there really is light at the end of the tunnel.
Looking back to April when I was in hospital for 2 separate weeks with sepsis, then had my subcutaneous cladribine treatment in May, now it feels like I'm a different person. I'm so grateful for the help my two daughters and also my ex-wife gave me back then, it really helped me on the road to recovery, whether it was the housework they did, or cooking meals, or just having someone here to talk to, their company made a huge difference.
