My usual practice is to get complete bloodwork done in advance of my quarterly follow-up visits to Dr. Hema. In that way, the details are available to the doctor at the time of my visit; they can be discussed at the visit, rather than speculate and then get a call from a nurse a couple of days later. My blood was taken at my local doctor's lab on Monday and the results faxed to Dr. Hema.
Nurse Kim just telephoned with excitement in her voice. She reported that the numbers are in and they're very good. The M-spike is now 0.21, down from 0.30 in April and 0.28 in October. The hemaglobin reading is now 12.3 against a normal range beginning at 13. These numbers are a further improvement and support my belief that my overall health is excellent.
I can hardly wait to see Dr. Hema on Tuesday and crow about my great progress and, of course, thank him for his skill and dedication. What a wonderful way to start the new year.
Woo hoo, indeed!!!
