I DO NOT HAVE GRAFT VS. HOST DISEASE IN MY LIVER!!!
My liver is SAFE FROM THIS NASTY DISEASE!! PRAISE GOD!!! THANK YOU, GOD!!!!
Yes, I know ALL CAPS means I'm yelling, but right now, I’m strung out on steroids, so that’s my excuse. :-)
I do have a slight case of graft vs. host, but it's only in my face/skin and mouth, which isn't as dangerous, obviously, but it's also so light, they feel they’re able to keep it under control. And they said they want a little of it because it will fight the cancer. The doc isn't worried and he will simply manage it. I think they believe they can bring it all under control. Well, I asked GOD to be my Head Physician, so I KNOW it’s gonna happen. He’s brought me this far, hasn’t He? I put my trust in Him, no matter what happens. No matter what happens, guys. My God is in charge whether I live or die.
The docs don't know why my liver enzymes are high. They said I have a fatty liver (this is BEFORE I started eating like a pig after being put on all the steroids, lol). But it's very likely the drugs are causing my liver enzymes to flare up because it was FINE before I started having drugs for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Either way, it's NOT THE DISEASE!!! What a HUGE relief!!! I BAWLED/SOBBED when I got in the car just thanking God over and over and over again.
OH!! They're going to cut my steroid dose in HALF and then slowly tapper off!!! The half dose starts tomorrow. I'm desperate for this! Thank You, God!
I don't know if I'll be able to sleep. I'm dying to EAT something. Oh, I ate so MUCH ice-cream and candy, the docs had to give me an insulin shot. LOL So, ice-cream and candy is now out of my diet!!! I'm so SAD!!! I DID EAT A TON of it. E-hem. I'm worried now, though. I don't know what else to eat but corn on the cob and sweet pickles (insane, I know; and even though I look it, no, I’m NOT pregnant, sigh). These are the only things that will go down. In fact, I really, really want some now (it’s 11 PM). In fact, bacon and eggs sound good NOW. See what happens. I go to bed thinking of FOOD ALL THE TIME. I’ve got to get these steroids out of my system.
I know it's because of all these prayers that have been going up on my behalf that God is hearing. Thank You, my God. Thank you my brothers and sisters in Christ. xxx
Love you all.
