Feeling hopeful

Hi friends , saw my Heamatolgist yesterday , and he was very pleased with my results ,which in turn made me feel happier ! My platelets down to 409 ! best ever !! so staying on 500 mg per day .. see him again in 3 month . He wasnt concerned about my recent blood infection said yes 5 is the norm but mine was 7.5 , but thinks over Christmas i had a virus but he not at all concerned . said to me water intake no more than 3litre day othrrwise we lose to much salt from our bodies which isnt good . so will heed his words and feel positive best wishes Holly xx

Keep up those great results. Thanks for the info re water intake. I try to hydrate but find it difficult at times. I do know how important it is. All the best in 2017. Hugs, Harlie

Good news Holly, enjoy the new year. The interesting point was about the water - I was told not to go overboard with the water thing by a nurse. She mentioned how much of our salts can be washed away and cause real damage to ourselves when we overdo the water. She said two litres is ample and maybe a bit less if we juice things. Apparently we can become fatigued, dizzy and a feeling of nausea if the salts become imbalanced. Food for thought, or rather water for thought.
