The last few days have been really hard. I've been running a fever along with a migraine, and I've felt like I've had the flu. My blood pressure was extremely low all day yesterday as well. I've been sleeping a lot. Brandon says it is a side effect of the medicine. They gave me oxycotin (?) to help with the headache tonight so for the first time I'm feeling halfway decent. This round has just been brutal. I am done with the blue stuff -- at my personal lifetime limit, and happy enough to never see it again. I'll have a different drug next week along with the Cytarabine.
My prayer request tonight is that the fever will stay away and I'll be allowed to go home after my chemo finishes up tomorrow morning. I haven't been eating at all, and I think I will do much better at home. The doctors think the fever has been due to the chemo drugs, though they did take cultures today just in case. I also received a blood transfusion today. My iron count was down in the 7s, so I'm sure that has something to do with why I'm feeling better tonight.
Barnes has kits in the mail for my siblings to be tested for a bone marrow donor match. The doctors say I have about a 90% chance of having a sibling match. We should know within two weeks.
Thank you all for your prayers.
