I wrote a little while ago about why I was so glad I had health insurance because I was undergoing all sorts of tests for what looked like cancer or leukemia. But now that I have the CT scans and all the blood tests back, my doctor has informed me that all is well on my insides – no sign of cancer, lymphomas or anything like that. Whoo hoo! Instead, my doctor thinks I have some sort of idiopathic (unknown) condition that causes my platelet levels to fluctuate wildly. My spleen, while still slightly enlarged, has come down from it’s biggest size during my ultrasound in December, so that is a good sign. I have another blood test scheduled for next month just to see what my levels are at, but all other blood results are normal and I should be fine, even if my platelet levels stay somewhat depressed.
It looks like we can move away from Los Angeles after all…I was waiting to see what was going to happen with this, because I did not want to move to a small town and undergo medical treatment. But now that I probably don’t need it, I guess we can start planning.
Anyway, I wanted to write this after I got so many comments and emails wishing me luck. I sincerely appreciate all of your concern and hopefully I will be around for a while now! 🙂
