Today was day 6 of chemo. It was also "blood day", better known as CBC day. I knew that I still felt like my count was low, but I was surprised since I got 2 units of blood and 1 unit of platelets on Friday. The test today said my blood count was 7.1 and my platelet count was 6. Less than a week ago my platelet count was 12, then with the infused platelets it should have been good. So, I got the talk, no sharp playthings, no shaving and no bruising. Right. Life is full of all of them. I have to admit that I am shaken. This time it lasted only 2 days. No change in my numbers and more need for blood doesn't seem like things are looking up. Now I am very worried about the next bone marrow biopsy.
Another 6 hour day in the infusion center. I'm very tired.
