This week I'm grateful for...
... my body reeaaaallllly liking the drugs it has to take.
I went for my three month check up with the specialist on Tuesday to see how the leukaemic cells trying to take over my body are responding to the medication. Because the medication I take is so expensive, the government sets targets that I have to reach for them to keep paying for 99% of it. My levels before I started the medication were at 159% (I asked the specialist how this was mathematically possible but didn't understand her answer) and they need to get down to 0 for me to be considered in remission. The target for the three month checkup is 15%. And mine were at 0.277%!! Go my body! This beat not only the 3 month target, but also the 6, 9 and 12 month targets. Yay!
Just the one grateful from me this week because it's such a big one but there are plenty more over here
