Hurricane Idalia

 We will be leaving out this afternoon because of the hurricane.   I don't know how bad it will get but, I know how it would be to stay here.

I would rather not stay here and upset Nancy and Vicki if high winds would start blowing.

We are going up in Georgia to spend the next two nights with our grandson.

So we shall see what happens.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Platelets heading wrong way

 Yeah, the platelet level has not stopped getting lower.  The reading on them with the blood drawn Friday the level is only 23 out of the low range it's supposed to be.

I'm due to see the oncologist in three weeks but if the reading on the platelets is out of range, I think he may want to see me earlier.

Just a wait and see situation.

At least the swelling has gone out of my legs and ankles.  But I had to take the water pills each day and when I do that I can't go anywhere. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Platelet Levels

 I guess I had better report how my platelet levels are doing.

The levels are coming down at a lower speed each time and hopefully will stop before they get to low.

August 11 the level was 233 down from 283 a month before.

August 18 the level was down to 202 as you can see from 233, so everything is looking good so far.

I have no idea how long it will be that I have to keep having my blood drawn every Friday.
I guess it will depend on how and when the platelets are at a normal stand still.

Thanks for stopping by and have a yourself a great day.

Blood drawn again.

 Had my blood drawn Friday and the platelet count went down, so I guess that is good since I'm not taking any medicine and it is staying in the range as it should be.

Vicki stayed home because Nancy wasn't feeling well and I did not want her to be by herself.
That was the first time I've gone to the doctor by myself in months.  The girls do not want me to drive by myself even though I tell them I feel just fine.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Old MacDonalds Restaurant

 Shery has gone home to West Virginia, where she is needed by her husband Mark because he has to get his feet operated on.

We will have the help of Vicki, our oldest daughter. 
They are a big help for Nancy. 

I went to the Cancer Center Friday to have my blood drawn again to see what the platelet count was.
I'm not taking the pills to raise it so the count is still coming down.  


Here are a few more photos of Sherry and my Fishing trip down to the Skyway Fishing pier.

Here's something you don't see anymore, It's an original MacDonalds Restaurant with the arches on the ground. 

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a great day.
