It has been a few weeks since I have sent out an update, so I thought it would be good to signify special days and events:
So it is Day +30 – Thirty Days since her NEW birthday. Things have certainly moved along in different speeds and we are looking at days with hope and with great anticipation. She is being more and more optimistic about her outcome with her health and she is looking forward to Day +60 when she will be able to go OUT and enjoy a favorite meal at a favorite restaurant, for right now it is home cooked meals and low bacteria diets (which will continue past Day +60).
She has been having clinic visits and doctor office visits twice a week (Mondays and Thursdays) and she is improving her counts with each visit. She takes about a dozen pills during the day (two rounds during the day), and her dosages change depending on how her counts are. Temperature checks twice a day, and we are flushing out her lines once a day. Her exercise is trudging up and down the stairs to the room every day (they are steep stairs, so exercise is pretty strenuous, LOL). She gets fatigued easily depending on the day, but most of the time she is either on her computer chatting on Facebook, texting to friends and family, or she is watching TV or DVDs.
She is able and very willing to have visitors. Please contact her first before coming over (either 503-341-3498 or at email@example.com). Her bedtime is usually by 9pm and she is usually up by 10am, but other than Clinic Days, she is pretty free most of the day!
She is again looking for donations to help with bills. If you are interested and willing, please donate to her by sending the donation made out to Jenene Philips to either 3543 SE Belmont St, Portland, OR 97214 or 1392 SE 64th Court, Hillsboro, OR 97123.
Or visit her website with a PayPal account attached, so that you can donate to her via a credit card. That site is: http://jenenephilips.tumblr.com/.
Please pass on the following link to those who may want to know about her past treatments and to keep a watch on her progress: http://neeners-updates.blogspot.com/.
