Hi All! I apologize for not posting lately but I have been packing and moving. Finally got about 90% moved last Thursday. I hope that this is the last one!!!!
I went for chemo on Wed. Missed the week before as I didn't want to be tired when I moved on Thurs. Anyway, my RBC had dropped 10 pts. It is down to 2.4. The nurse freaked out. My onco wasn't there but the "dr. of the day" said not to worry about it. It could just be a lab error and I would be in next week and it could all be rechecked. That made me feel better. I promised to slow down and to eat lots of red meat. Well, about 15 mins ago the nurse calls and says that my onco wanted me to come in immediately for blood work and some other tests that I would mail back to them. I asked if I could have the blood work done at our local hospital and reminded her that I would be seeing my onco on Tues. She decided that I could wait until then but said that Dr. Mary is concerned about a GI bleed. Nothing unusual other than being extremely tired. Now she has me scared to death. I have never had problems w/ my counts. I evidently lost 4 lbs but I attribute that to stress and packing and going up and down stairs. Nothing wrong w/ losing a little weight.
Please send some positive thoughts my way.
