Just got the blood results back – my white blood cell count is to 6.0 – up from 2.9 (good threshold is 3.5). The shots worked to raise my blood count. Now I can have chemo – yes, I can have chemo – poison running through me killing all the new cells – cancer and other ones too – so that’s a good thing? It is really.
Oh, I am back to the chemo sessions and more shot sessions because you know the blood count will go down when the chemo starts battling it. So it’s kinda a wow-great-the-shots-worked, so I can do chemo. My body is going to be so confused.
But hopefully this round (three days in a row for chemo and four days in a row with the shots) will go smoothly. The last round was tolerable – I was tired mostly and achy. Whatever it is – it will be. It won’t define me.
