Luiz health update

Luiz went to the cancer center today. We are always anxious about what might be reported.

His bloodwork shows absolutely steady numbers. In fact, his platelet count is dropping. This is good news. I love to see the line on that graph falling!

A full-on review shows that things continue to be present and a problem, but in the short run he is holding steady.

And the best evidence of this is that the docs have asked him to return in 3 months -- not the 2-month interval he has been practicing. If they are happy to slow their observation -- we are happy Luiz needs less frequent observation.

The world of Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia is stressful on a daily basis -- but occasionally we get some good news.

Luiz is staying out of trouble.
