Platelet Count Improved

On a day of the infusion, I asked about the platelet count as soon as a nurse opened my medical record in the computer. The platelet count, which has been declining straight since I started Afinitor, went down to 136K mg, (the bottom number of the standard is 130K), two weeks ago.

Then the surprise answer came back: “it is 265k mg.”

“265? Are you sure? The last time it was 136.” I asked again.

“Yes. It is 265. So now the doctor wants you to increase Afinitor to 7.5mg.”

Wow! I can’t believe it!

As the mouth sores are gone, I thought my body was getting used to Afinitor, but the platelet count has improved, too? I had noticed that the blood sugar and cholesterol levels improved, as well. What has happened to me? I don’t think I did anything different. This must be God’s intervention. The prayers were granted!

I am still cautious about the side effects getting worse once I increase the dose, but from tonight, I will increase the Afinitor dose from 5mg to 7.5mg. This is a good move.
Thank you, God!
