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!!!
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…
