a little boost for the blood

We did go to G'ville Wednesday and Glenn got a unit of blood because his blood count didn't go up in spite of getting the shot for it the week before. The Dr. also told us that the markers for his disease have gone up, not out of normal range yet, but it made a significant jump. Now we go back in 3 weeks to find out about chemo. Glenn's only regret is that while he has been feeling good these last few weeks we haven't been able to travel anywhere.  Tomorrow we go to the renal clinic to see how his dialysis has been doing. He has been maintaining his weight and fluid balance well so far. We hope for a good report from tomorrow's testing so he can start doing  night time dialysis and free up his day time to drive me more crazy. Oh, did I just say that? I mean, so we can do more things during the day time together and enjoy more time of being with each other, (insert sarcasm).  ;-)
He discovered something on one of his legs that is a little concerning. It looks like a cluster of little blisters, but he says it doesn't hurt or itch. If it itched or hurt I wouldn't be as concerned, but that really narrows the possibilities of what it could be. I'll keep you posted on that development, or clearing up.  ttfn
