My WBC count for today was 9.11! Remarkable. That's higher than what I came in with! So they have stopped the Neupogen shots and will let my body take control now.

Also today they stopped two of my antibiotics. If all goes well tonight, i'l be weined off the rest of them tomorrow, and discharged on Tuesday!! That is when we had our original plane ticket booked for, so it works out perfectly.

I still have much weakness in my legs. I can stand up but that's strictly on bone strength. If I unlock my knees, I am like j-e-l-l-o! So I am anxious to have Dr. B or Dr. T (the MS doctors) stop by tomorrow and give me advice. I didn't expect to leave here worse off than I came, but I keep reminding myself "it's only temporary"!

I think that's about it... Mom and I are watching Lifetime movies right now. Haha :)


  1. Great job! Just think you will be home in no time! You will be shopping the malls for x-mas gifts in no time!!!

  2. Hi Tracy,
    Thank goodness for lifetime........snuggling up and watching "Lifetime" movies is like soup for the soul! Great news about Tuesday...can't wait to hear you are home again!!!!

    Safe trip and much love,
    Ray & Irene

  3. Hey Brave One:
    Not to worry about those will all come back. I am so happy to hear you will be coming home.
    One hug from Evan and you will feel like a new woman. Have a safe trip and remember that your High Definition TV awaits you.
    Love you tons,
    Auntie Nan and gang

  4. Great news!!! So glad you're coming home Tuesday. It will be wonderful to see you home again. You should be so proud of yourself for getting through this tough time, what a trooper. Your Mom is one tough cookie as well. Looks like the genes Myrt passed on really came in handy. Three generations of strong willed women, what a legacy.
