Health update-all is pretty well. My blood work and blood pressure are a little concerning-they continue to monitor. My white blood cells, red blood cells, and my hemoglobin are good. My platelets and liver functions are still acting weird. My liver numbers continue to rise-meaning the liver is working overtime to keep everything good-although my billirubin is just above normal. My blood pressure continues to slowly come down 123/83 today.
Thank you for taking the time to read, comment and pray for Karen, myself and the guys!
