Lg, I love your prayers. Thank you so much It's not a yeast, so those fixes won't work. They're going to rx me a steroid mouthwash and quit tapering the immune suppressants for a while. I'm rinsing with saline and got a refill on the Magic Mouthwash with lidocaine, to numb while I brush, etc. Labs were all stable, no transfusion and platelets going up slightly, yippee! They do want to do another bone marrow biopsy cause it's the 6 month mark and my numbers, while stable overall, are still low. I'm not really worried, because I've been slow to recover in the past. It's just not a pleasant procedure to go through. I need to find out if they do it under sedation locally or if I need to go back to Portland. Baby chicks are doing great. loving the Cave.
