White blood cells go up…. and they stay there, and they say yeah, and they stay there….

Up down, up down, up down

Cause all I do is win, win, win

Round 12 is in the books folks… a slight delay… you could say I didn’t exactly “make weight” Friday. I think my doctor just wanted to say “See you next Tuesday”.

I’m trying to look more like Gina Carano:

And less like Karen Carpenter:

Apparently my white blood cells were up enough to have chemo yesterday (thank you for the “prayers for my immune system”-Megan, Marni, Jenn, and M&D).

It was a long day yesterday, I think they had to count the cells one by one before they could hook me up, but it’s done. Now I recover (avoid anyone that is remotely ill) and in 4 weeks I will have a CT scan to see how things look. If I’m a candidate for surgery then it will be scheduled. There is no date set as of yet. Let’s just estimate for November.

I’m back at work today, anticipating the big Wild Card game tonight… I sure love pirates, sorry cubs fans.


Anywho, GO CARDS!!! Thanks for all of your encouragement. Stay GOLD PonyBoy. I’m not sure there will be many updates between now and scan time, so hopefully Angela will post some past videos and I will try to make some new port videos. For real this time…

  1. You are so amazing to me! You are such an inspiration. I don’t know if you are sick of hearing that, if it irritates you, or if you take it as the compliment it is meant to be…. I know being sick is complicated but man you are kicking ass and taking names!!!! Keep going Jill you look, and sound better then anyone I’ve ever seen go through anything similar. Maybe it’s because you are SO loved by SO many and just maybe it’s because you’ve never been a loser a day in your life!!!! Kick ASS buddy!!!
