day +1390

Thursday morning I returned to Sloan for a blood draw and an appointment with my nurse practitioners. My blood counts were very good although the white cells were slightly elevated possibly due to a cold I've had for several days. My weight is basically the same: 129 lbs. Most importantly, the GvHD remains stable but it is still a very delicate situation, they reiterated. They emphasized how important it is that I take all my medications as prescribed out of concern that the situation could reverse easily and worsen.

This coming Thursday I'll go back to see my doctor, who has been on a vacation, followed by an appointment with my ophthalmologist. Since taking these new medications, I've noticed a very subtle but temporary change in my vision when I exit from my building into the bright morning light. The nurse practitioners said it's possibly that the Voriconazole might be the cause. Regardless, just to make sure everything is OK, I have an appointment with my ophthalmologist that afternoon.
