Because this blog was more to keep you all updated on Tiffany, let me update you.
She is in good spirits, and generally, is able to perform all daily responsibilities as normal. She still cannot pick up heavy things (Porter, mainly) and feels like her stomach has shrunk as she thinks she can't eat as much as she used to before feeling full. I think she thinks this is a great return of investment (ROI, for you money peeps) on the whole splenectomy. I just hope she doesn't waste away to nothing.
With that said, many people have asked what's next. The truth of the matter is, we don't know. Aside from visiting with the doctor every few weeks, having blood work done, and watching for any symptoms, as far as we are concerned, life is back to normal. She was going to the doctor for many months before the bone marrow test skewed things a bit. Basically, that is all we do until the doctors finally conclude what the rest of us already have; That a miracle has taken place and no further testing is needed.
She does have a doctors appointment next week, however, and each appointment will hopefully give us that much more comfort. So for all those concerned out there, no news is good news. And that's the way we are going to play it until there is something to report.
