I thought I would update everyone on what is going on with my chemo. Today was round 3, cycle 1. My numbers were pretty good. My white blood cells were a little low but nothing too concerning. My red blood cells were 8.4 which is higher than they were for the last three treatments. My platelets were 239 which is in the higher normal range. Those are looking really good! So by now you are wondering what kind of dose I got. Well we decided to do 1000. Hopefully my numbers will remain high so that I can do larger doses the following two weeks. I also got the Arenasp (the shot that boosts my red blood cells) and I got my Xgeva shot (the one that helps my bones get stronger). If you were counting that was a grand total of 3 needles today! Boy what a hard day for a needle diva like myself! We are also going to do a PET scan at the end of February to see if this chemo is doing it’s job. Today at chemo I had a surprise visitor. Mike, Janice’s husband, stopped by for a little bit. It was so good to see him and it made my day. I know it must have been hard for him to go back to a chemo treatment room so I really appreciated it so much!
I thought I would also share some a picture of the dresses I made for the girls. I also made the matching headbands.
If you want to see more pictures you can go HERE. Also on my sewing website I posted the headbands I made for my niece’s birthday. I usually make her something each year for her birthday. I think this is the first year I actually took a picture of what I made. You can find that post HERE.
