Full Calendar for the Weekend

So, report for today?  Blood is 7.7 and platelets 6.  My entire weekend became planned in just a few minutes.   When my blood and platelets are in, most likely Saturday,  they will call me.  On Sunday, I will have to go back to the hospital for another blood test.

I have the appointment on Monday to the transplant doctor so they are filling me up. I need to walk upright into his office.

I have to admit that I am getting depressed over the constant need for transfusing.  I know that the chemo works for the 3 weeks off so that is probably keeping the platelets low.  But I am still not making my own blood.  I try to stay positive but I'm afraid it is getting harder and harder everytime.
