After receiving yesterday’s blood count results, I apparently need a cheer squad to coax some of my white blood cells to get active.
It’s not really that big a deal in the scheme of things. I just need to keep laying low for a bit longer than hoped. By Saturday I hope to be on the climb back up towards the next chemo date. That’s about half-way through the first cycle and only three days away.
I’m now armed with a super-duper mouth wash to ward away/manage potential ulcers. Yay!
This week, I’m grateful for:
cooler temperatures for sleeping and dozing;
a live-in chef who concocted a delicious mashed potato and garlic on request last night;
calls and cards from friends and family;
stop/start medicines 😉 ;
chocolate; and most of all,
my wonderfully wacky big-hearted cousin who, yesterday, took to the clippers for me and others, and in memory of her dear Mum. Looking good Marg! ❤
