My Happy Contradiction

11/2/16 – Throughout my adventures with MCL, my body has had times when it responds in an unexpected way… in a way that surprises my doctors. They expect me to react one way but my body takes me in a completely different direction. The nurses sometimes refer to me as a fine print patient… someone who is the exception to the rules. Sure, at times this has caused me setbacks… but sometimes things work to my advantage.
With my last update, I reported that I had another bone marrow biopsy that showed a positive result of MDS… and yesterday, I had a complete blood count (CBC) test… and the results were remarkably normal. I mean people who have never been sick a day in their lives would be thrilled with such great results.
This is extremely interesting being when you Google MDS you find that low blood cell counts are a hallmark feature of disorder and are responsible for the following symptoms that patients experience — infection, anemia, spontaneous bleeding, or easy bruising. Anemia (low red blood cell counts), neutropenia (low white blood cell counts), and thrombocytopenia (low platelet counts)… and the good news… I have none of the above.
So, what does this mean? I have no idea. It is just one of those mysterious contradictions. In my case in is a happy contradiction.
I have another follow up to check my blood counts on November 29th and then I have my next set of scans on December 19th. I’m hoping for continued good results… and maybe a continuation of my life’s contradictions.
Lord, I don’t know where all this is going, or how it all works out.Lead me to peace that is past understanding, a peace beyond all doubt
Here is a YouTube link to a great song by the Newsboys with this same message.Enjoy!!!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U6iBGdY1j2w
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.Proverbs 3:5-6
More to come…
