Hospital Update – August 3

We are still waiting for the results of the genetic testing for the blast cells; not sure when we will have that information. But, there were a couple of notable accomplishments today.

First, they took me off diet restrictions that had been in place due to my gallbladder. My appetite is still low, but I can eat solid foods after being on a liquid diet for the past few weeks. My first meal back? Chicken Tortilla soup.

I was also able to walk outside my room with physical therapy for the first time since I was in ICU. That’s almost three weeks. I didn’t make it far, but it was a lot farther than I did yesterday.

For now, we continue to wait. Wait for the genetic results to come back. Wait as I continue to rebuild the strength I took for granted before I was admitted. And wait to see how God will bless us next.
