Went to get some bloodwork done at Overlook Hospital today. My hemoglobin and platelets are higher than they have been in months which means my bone marrow is starting to churn out blood on its own. Hopefully we are past transfusion time for now. Also, my lungs are much more clear from the pneumonia. Doc said clear on the right and very mild in one spot on the left. Very, very mild. I am coughing more. Hopefully that is a good sign or a sign of my productivity.
I am getting some work done today and by the way just had to chase the dog because she escaped the back yard! Talk about FATIGUE! Yikes! I reeled her in with a bone.
One more thing … check out the walking video from yesterday below. Although I still look like skeletor, My walking has improved significantly. I weighed in at a svelte 182 today. That is after spending much of my adult life somewhere between a buff 210 and an overweight 225. Now I guess I get a chance to rebuild my body on MY TERMS. Easier to pack the weight on than take it off.
That’s all for now. Visit with Dr. G at Penn on Thursday. I will update then. We are getting there.
