So I had the blood draw today. Good news… the neupogen must be doing it’s thing because my white blood count is up a bit, not normal range, but up, and my neutrophils are up enough that I’m no longer neutropenic… yay! The bad news… my red blood counts are all down. Not unusual since this is my nadir period. Nancy said they could still be going down a little. The thing is… they are down enough that my oncologist decided I needed a transfusion. Bummer. I have to go in tomorrow morning at 8:30 to get it. Poor Karen. First day back and she has to get up early to take me in for a procedure that takes about 4 or 5 hours. At least we will get to talk. I love that she’s home. I haven’t said much about it, but it’s been hard at times not having her here. I’ve been through quite a bit in the last month and have missed having her with me. I’m so glad she was with Mary during this time, but I did miss her terribly!
So, another damn IV tomorrow. Hopefully my last for a long while. Good thoughts for that.
