I've kept a promise to myself to update more than once this week. However, there really isn't a lot to update. I'm still going to the clinic every other day. This is so much nicer than going every day - I feel like I get some rest and a little bit of "normal" on the off days. Thus far I have needed platelets everyday that I have gone. However, my hemoglobin and hematocrit have stayed up so I haven't needed red blood cells in a while. My legs are still very colorful but the swelling has stayed down and I am very mobile which is super nice.
I'm still on the chemo pills which are messing with my taste buds and drying my skin out but that's about it (not a lot to complain about!!). I don't have mouth sours but things just don't taste right... If I could live off of blueberry pancakes, Popsicles, and Whopper Jr.'s I may be okay (very weird appetite I know). My white count is continuing to creep up which is not what we want to see. They put me back on the Hydrea on Thursday but this morning my white count had still gone up. They are going to wait until Monday to make any adjustments to my dosages though.
Since I went to clinic this morning I get tomorrow off which hopefully means brunch at the Cheesecake Factory... for those of you who keep up with my blog this is always a highlight of my week... hopefully the french toast is still just as good!
Much love and thanks to you all! Amy
