My 4 1/2 month checkup on Gleevec

Just a quick update, I had my 4 1/2 month checkup. This is just a routine checkup, to make sure the blood work shows that things are going ok. Good news is that I'm still in Hematological remission, with a WBC of 5k. This was slightly up from last months of 4.2k, but totally normal. We don't need to worry until it approaching 10K and above, so we're looking to see it stabilize somewhere between 3-7k (most Gleevec patients run on the lower side of the normal range of 4-11k.
The next appointment will be June 1st, which will be the always fun BMA. Those results won't be available until 7-10 days after that.
