I had my 6 month oncologist visit on September 30, 2009. My blood counts all came back normal and my IgM level came back better! The level was down to 504. Dr. Olajide said that the cancer is dormant or completely gone. The elevated IgM level could be a result of inflammation, or a few dormant cancer cells. The only way to ascertain is to have a bone marrow biopsy which she doesn't recommend at this time. Next visit in 6 months. Yeah! The Lord has blessed me with good health, and we are grateful to Him.

I had an eye appointment on March 12, 2009. I was praying that the Lord would allow me to be released from the retinal specialists. The Lord answered my prayers and the eye doctor said that my eyes were better than 20/20! Must be all the carrot juice I drink! I no longer have to go to the specialist. Yea! One less doctor's appoinment and payment!
I met with the oncologist on March 6, 2009. It had been 9 months since our last visit. I was nervous about the results of the blood work that had been taken the previous day. I kept giving my cancer to the Lord and then taking it back. I have the bad habit of worrying during waiting, instead of trusting and relying on the Lord. The doctor did the exam and didn't find anything abnormal. However, the blood work hadn't been completed so she said that she would call me. More waiting. Finally, that afternoon she called with the results. My IGM had dropped once again! My level is 566! It is still not normal range, but she said that as long it was stable or declining that I was fine! Praise the Lord. Next appointment will be in 6 months.
