Well, here I am wired again. Gotta love the steroids... Here are the bloodwork numbers:
WBC 3.4 (4.2 last week)
Hgb 13.4 (13.5)
HCT 41.2 (41.7)
Plat 308 (257)
ANC 1.6 (2.2)
I thought chemo was supposed to lower the platelets?? No nausea (thanks Emend), and all week I didn't have to take a Zofran at all! 5 hour day, 8 trips to the potty, and got home to do about 3 hours of work. Then cooked three very nice 16oz rib steaks on the grille with sweet potatoes and a 100% organic salad.
Gave the wife a girls night out with friends in the neighborhood (yes, that meant I did all of the dishes and cleaned up the whole kitchen, but hey, steroid wired, might as well!) and she still isn't home yet so hope she is having a good time. Hope everyone has a great weekend!! Hey, just heard the garage door open, gotta run!!

Attitude is everything, you have to keep it positive! And take it one day at a time, it's all anyone can do with this disease...
