Well Mom and I just finished watching the movie Julie & Julia and I'm sorry that I don't have more exciting things to blog about. However, if I were to try to cook my way through Julia Child's cookbook it probably would be quite interesting for very different reasons than in the movie (I cannot cook. Bake, yes. But cook, no.)
I went to clinic today and had my usual treatment plus received a unit of platelets. My hemoglobin was still high from the infusion on Friday so no red blood cells today. I can definitely tell if my hemoglobin is low/high as it corresponds with how much energy I have. However, my white count took a big jump to 6.5 (it had been staying around 3.5-4.5) so this is worrisome to me. The PA I see in clinic is basically there to treat the symptoms and not the big picture so he didn't really have much insight into this jump. He did however say that he would discuss it with Dr. Rizzieri and my "main PA" Therese this afternoon. So hopefully we'll know more Friday. Dr. Rizzieri did say one time that a white blood count at or below 7 would satisfy him, but I still don't like the big jump.
I did come across one good thing today though: Reese Cup Milkshakes from The Cookout. After having one I no longer think I will be satisfied with a Reese Cup blizzard from Dairy Queen. Just wanted to end on a positive note,
Much thanks to you all, Amy :)
