Good Morning all.  My blood counts continue to improve.  My platelets are in normal range, My hemoglobin/red blood is in the 9.0 range,  my neutrafils, the part of your white blood count that fights infection are low normal.  I just need to keep getting my strength back so I can survive another round of chemo.  My liver enzymes are still high from the treatment, that's why they won't let me take the iron chelation med.  I do feel stronger everyday, but I have a long way to go. 

God Bless,


  1. Great to hear your counts are going up. Yesterday I had to google shankles because I didn't know what that was; you learn something new every day. Love & Hugs, Debbie

  2. Hey Scott. Have you seen any deer yet? I imagine there are all kinds of birds outside of your window too. Soak up the sun and feel better. Have a blessed Easter.

  3. Hello Scott and Betty,
    Like so many others, I'm going to continue to pray for you both, everyday. I'm glad your numbers are improving and you are feeling stronger; that's awesome! Thanks for sharing that good news on this Good Friday.

    Happy Easter!

  4. This is great news, I continue to pray for your strength and biopsy. I also pray for Betty's strength as well. There is strength in numbers. Shae says hi and she is happy you feel better every day:). We miss Mick on our walks, it is beautiful out, birds singing, trees budding and no mosquitoes. If you need anything let me know. If you still have the # for the guy who found Mick tag, I can pick it up if you would like. Take care, Cindy
