    Bobs HGB has finally gotten back up over the 11’s – 11.4, reds and whites normal, plts hit 72 but there is always room for error there. We are quite pleased. He starts the vidaza 7/7 again and will see how the Counts start doing, Next drs visit 7/12 they usually do a blood slide for the dr to review to see how his cells are.
    Bob still has lots of marks like petechia areas on his body and little sores break out occassionally we feel this is all the plts, I have to start fresh juicing again and see if I can get those black sesame seeds to see if we can give a boost to the plts again.

    Terri — that’s great news! I’d love for my father’s counts to be that good. Please keep us posted on how the Vidaza works. My father may be starting that soon.

    When you do juicing, what do you use?

    We juice fresh pineables, apples and carrots.

    Terri,
    I still have a lot of faith in the Noni Capsules, my platelets have not dropped below 100k since I started taking them 8 months ago, the only way I can know for sure is to stop taking them, which isn’t going to happen. It would be nice to hear if anyone else has had any luck with them. With the good there is also bad, my whites are at 35.
