Today I went to the lab to get blood drawn. Apparantly the chemo has made my white count very very low and now they say I am very prone to infection. No digging in the garden, eating raw veggies or cleaning up after my dogs. Good handwashing and often. Any slight fever to report immediately , also sore throat etc. I am feeling extremely tired too. I keep falling asleep.
Oh and today my hair started coming out in clumps. I washed it today and threw away a handful. But on the bright side, I have a wig and several scarves that my daughters have bought me. I want my daughter to cut my hair short now, so I don't have to deal with long strands, but she is not sure if she is coming down with a cold. So, we postponed it for tonight at least. I don't want to catch a cold. I have to be careful around the grandchildren too.
I went to the surgeon today to discuss the placement of my port. That will be done next Monday and Tuesday I get my next chemo infusion. Please continue to pray for me. I need your prayers, you wonderful people. I am blessed to have you all in my life and I love each and every one of you, truly!!!
I'll keep you all updated as I go along. Thanks for the interest.
Blessings and lots of love,
