I am now making my own hemoglobin, which MEANS- that I AM A MAN!!!! :) Ok, not really a MAN, but I do have XY chromosomes in my blood, instead of XX for a female. Thanks Zach!! Now we are going to be the closest siblings ever! :) The fact that I can produce my own hemoglobin does mean my blood type has changed, from O+ to Zach's, A something (do people really remember the + or -?) The most important thing my own hemoglobin means: I have energy!!!! It may not be at awesome levels yet, but it's coming!
The last two weeks have been so much better for how I feel every day, and a good thing too- because a lot has happened recently!! Adam has accepted a position in our home state of UTAH and we're moving across country in 1 1/2 weeks!! Soon after accepting that and coming to terms with a horrible time of year to be packing and moving... We had to deal with Hurricane Sandy and no power or heat for a week!! So after a few long days of camping out in our house and crazy riotous lines for gas, we went to Boston over the weekend to stay in a hotel with heat and a gas station nearby- NO lines :)
Now we're back, celebrated Halloween late, and are off to a slow packing/shedding start before the big cross country drive over Thanksgiving week. Today I have an appointment for a bone marrow biopsy and results from my first PETScan since remission, at 2pm- it's 10am and I'm feeling nervous as I've ever felt- my stomach is rumbly and I feel sick. I may be able to be mentally be stoic but my body sure can't control itself!! I'll post as soon as possible after my appointment to share the news!
