Blood Test for Chemo

This morning I was at the clinic getting my blood drawn and tested in anticipation of chemo tomorrow. I didn’t see the Onc … just the nurse who went over my blood work with me. My white cell count has recovered to 2.5 and that’s really good so chemo is a go tomorrow.

The nurse and I discussed my schedule. No chemo next week because it’s week three of my cycle and a no visit the following week because of Canada Day falling on my chemo day.

So I get a two-week break. I’m not crazy about skipping the chemo on the second week because I’ve skipped so many lately because of my PICC line infection. 

Otherwise I’m feeling really good on Round One and that’s great.
