I've gotten some really great comments lately. Under the theology of the body post, Clare wrote a wonderful piece about the role of beauty in communicating truth. Thank you, Clare!
Also, Teodora-Yana Yaacov wrote from Bulgaria. It's amazing how the Internet connects people all over the world.
In another post someone who had HCL wrote to ask about blood counts. I can't find the particular post now so I'll answer it here. HCL (hairy-cell leukemia) is a blood disease I've had in the past. The person was concerned because his or her blood counts are declining.
That can be a bit scary because declining blood counts are the first sign the disease is returning. However, my doctor told me that the white cell count can fluctuate quite a bit and sometimes it doesn't mean much. At times my would dip down a little below normal but then come back up again. It's only recently--last year--that my platelet count got consistently back into the normal range. So it takes time. I'll keep the anonymous commenter in my prayers.
