Shortly after taking my meds for the day the doorbell rings; it is the Fed-Ex guy with my new bottle of life saving drugs. Tomorrow I will begin taking 100 mg of Sprycel instead of 70 mg. I am still reluctant to do so, but am trying to be the best patient possible in order to put this leukemia into remission.
I am hoping that my recent decline of white cells, while taking the lesser dose, was just a fluke and that my body will be able to maintain and hold its’ own on this new dose. It is still less than the original prescription on 140 mg. Over the lips and over the gums, look out body; here it comes!
