OK peeps, the numbers have dropped. After the most recent chemo treatment I was sent home to rest and recover. I was also supposed to be sick and need mucho rest. I’ve been tired over the past week, but I was only sick just after the chemo treatment. Since I’ve been home, I’ve actually been feeling quite well.
But, no matter how I feel, my blood lab numbers have been slowly falling. I even needed a platelet infusion on Saturday.
Today’s lab results came back, and the important stats dropped below the appointed threshold. So, I contacted UCLA, and they’re coordinating my return.
At this point I’m to return to UCLA while my body recovers. During that time my immune system will bottom out a little more, then slowly bounce back. They originally said that it will take about 2 weeks before I’m released. But, I’m holding out hope that it’ll be a bit shorter.
I love having visitors, so if you’ve not been sick this week contact Deanna to find a good time to come see me. 🙂
