There actually isn't much to tell at this point. The preliminary blood work came back from Dr. Cohen. There were some abnormalities, but not not enough to make a firm diagnosis. He is currently working on testing the tissue from the biopsy as well as doing DNA testing for a specific mitochondrial disease. My job at this point is to just wait.
I did try the new med, Epogen, for a month. I was not able to continue taking it because it caused an increase in my fatigue. I'm glad I had the opportunity to try it, but I'm a little bit glad that it didn't work because it is a painful shot! I would rather have an easier-to-take, less painful medicine.
Regular Life Update:
We recently went on a trip to the Midwest to visit family members and go to my brother's wedding. The trip was exhausting for me, but we had a wonderful time. It was good to see friends and family members again whom we hadn't seen in a year or more. While at Will's dad's house, we also enjoyed being outside, playing with dogs, and holding adorable puppies.
Grandpa and Grandma have room to run!
Puppies make me happy.
