Platelet Watch Summer 2007 (Update No. 6)
Cautious Optimism wagged her little tail when she heard the news. 85 platelets. In a vigorous effort to pursuade her oncologist to commit to allowing her to go to the UK, Tracy scrambled furiously over sensible Cautious Optimism. She succeeded only in getting his charming smile, something that sounded a hell of a lot like a patronizing OK to go ahead and pack if she must, and a clear dose of But-I'm-Not-Making-Any-Decisions-Until-Monday. Tracy retreated, saving her resources for the next encounter. She scratched Cautious Optimism's ears in apology for the trouncing and thanked her for staying with her for so long.
