Here’s a little health update for my Tumblr followers:
My LFT (liver function tests) levels are extremely high both, and I’m currently experiencing acute liver damage once again. I’ve been unable to proceed with my 11th round of chemotherapy to approach remission until this recovers. The liver inflammation is a side effect from aspariginase.
If it does not reach normal parameters by Thursday, I will be admitted to the hospital as an inpatient again for a tougher chemotherapy regimen. My hematologist-oncologist is currently trying to figure out my back up drug plan. I’ve been trying to drink wheatgrass shots and foot acupressure (complimentary therapies) to do whatever I can to bring these levels down, though most of it is out of my control.
I’ve been struggling with ongoing nausea, abdominal pain, shortness of breath, fatigue and general weakness. But I’ve still been able to go out, and most people can’t see that I’m very sick.
Please pray for protection of my liver and minimal side effects. Please pray for readiness of chemotherapy. Please pray for a miracle match.
