My 'week off' was over as of yesterday. I started my 4th cycle. On the 18th my numbers were: hemoglobin 7.9 and platelets 11. No infusion. On Monday they were: hemoglobin 7.6 platelets 11. Again no infusion. I did not think that was so bad but I really wanted them to be good. Yesterday they were: hemoglobin 7.2 and platelets 9. White cells stay between .09 and 1.5. They were 1.3 yesterday. No improvement in the numbers. Dr. O said that I would be doing at least 2 more cycles to see if they improved. She is pleased with the bone marrow. So I have day 1 of 7 down.
I am just about ready to go and get day 2 of 7 over with. After a while without Zofran, I am back on. I was actually very sick last night.
On Saturday my eldest daughter will turn 40! Does that make her old or me old? What a conundrum!
