It's been a long day. The Hematologist ran 15 different blood tests and reviewed my case with me. While my red and white cells counts have responded very well to treatments, my platelet count remains suppressed. My marrow does not indicate the presence of Hodgkin's. I am not recovering from treatments the way other patients are. There lies the issue. I have another appointment in two weeks, and the Hematologist is going to review the scans to determine whether another lymph biopsy should be done and what node to remove. He feels this would be the best course of action to take at this time. I'm not out of the woods yet. I can only take it one step at a time.
