Met with my oncologist on Tuesday for a check-up after finishing the first chemo cycle. They drew more blood for labs and while I feel good physically, the doctor is postponing my second cycle for a week.
Apparently my white blood cell counts are too low to have started round 2 right away. So I go back in next week for another blood draw and if things look better then we’ll start again.
As much as I’m not a big fan of the chemo, I was bummed to have to delay it a week. I would rather just keep plowing forward and get er done.
I’m beginning to feel like a pincushion with all these blood draws and IV’s. A port under my chest may well be on my Christmas list. Not sure if that means I’ve been naughty or nice…
