My white blood cells and red blood cells have a low count this week, the first time my numbers have been low yet! So, we are doing great to have come so far without dips, but the dips were pretty hugely huge and had the chemo nurse worrying. I have also had that wicked toothache and my allergies kicked in major last weekend so that could be something to do with it. I'm usually down for 12-21 days with super, major, hokey-dina-bad allergies every year in May. We are taking allergy meds and praying against that this year for sure!!!
My oncologist said to eat red meat, eat spinach, and rest, rest, rest. So I'm doing my part on the lunch, and trying hard to rest... but it's hard to rest when you feel good! ;-) I'm trying to be a good patient. It's just so hard to resist feel-good days... and then this week we got sunshine, too!!!
So here I am today, Day 2, enjoying the sunshine, and so incredibly proud of Kyle for coming home with Honour Roll and Effort Roll for his grade 9 second semester! So proud of you, my son. So incredibly proud.
