Ugh…went in today hoping round 6 of chemo would happen, but it didn’t. My neutrophils were a 0.5 and my Doctor did not want to risk me going through chemo. We figured in round 5, my neutrophils will be low this round because round 5 they were a 1.3, but hoped they would be in a good place to move forward with chemo, but that did not happen.
I am bummed.
I’ve mentioned this before in one of my blog post that you cannot be in control when dealing with cancer. You have to be so flexible and just know things can change very easily. It sucks, especially when you are a planner. You cannot really plan while going through cancer especially when the chemo loves to attach my neutrophils.
I gotta keep being careful with who I am around and public places. I’ve made sure to stay on top of taking vitamin C and washing my hands like crazy. Hand sanitizer is key!
I got a G shot today, which I’ve had before and it helped boost my neutrophils last time so I am sure it will help again this time. From now on, after every chemo treatment I will follow-up with three rounds of G shots. I had one today and will go in tomorrow and Saturday to get another. Chemo was rescheduled for January 4th and after that treatment, I will have three rounds of G shots. My Doctor does not want to lower my chemo dosage and we feel with getting the G shots more frequently will really help! I am cross my fingered because honestly, I am done having chemo being postponed. It is prolonging this journey and all I want is to be cancer free/done with chemo.
Keeping my head up and pushing forward to kill this cancer. Bye bye cancer!
One thought on “Round Six…Postponed”
Amazing, this gift (your blog) to everyone who reads it! God takes our challenges and makes blessings out of them, for our highest good and those around us…and if we will, use it as an opportunity to draw closer to Him.
Jeremiah 29:11-13 says: “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. 12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart”. Thank you Audrey!
