    phil62 I am hoping that today is a good day for you . The sun was shining here in Indiana and as I pushed myself to work through this day , I remembered that with cancer each day I now receive is a great gift . I hope that you too have had a sunny day as your gift today .

    well new change in my treatment. Now they say my liver numbers are too high and that I can't take the gleevec for at least this month to try to get them back down. Have to wonder if I should worry , or go with the flow ... any one else experience this with gleevec?

    Side Effects (Anemia (low red blood cell counts)): I am not sure that the side effects are from the chemotherapy . This journey started in 2011 when I knew something was wrong but they couldn't find the cause. It took over a year of testing and iron infusions to find the cause of my anemia and weight loss. I remember being so weak last year that I just didn't want to wake up . Now when I have a side effect from the treatment , it is usually nausea and fatigue. But compared to where I have been this last year they seem minor. Still they keep me from hours of "living" with my family and I resent that at times
