Well today I went in to get chemo and because my numbers were too low I couldn’t get chemo. I know what you are saying. “Didn’t you just have a week off?” Yes. Last week was my chemocation. I did, however, go in last Monday to check my red blood cells and they were at 7 (normal is 12). They didn’t go down from the week before when I got chemo. The thought was that because I had that week off my numbers would rise a little. OK so my body decided that it wasn’t going to cooperate. Today my red blood cells were 6.9. Too low for chemo. Also my platelets were too low. Mine were 57 and normal would be 150. Because platelets are what clot together if you cut yourself, I have to be extremely careful! The plan is to take this week off and then try again next week. Hopefully my body can make some more red blood cells and platelets.
On to other news, I got a new wig. Because Gulfstream’s insurance doesn’t pay for wigs, I am stuck with the wig I got several years ago. While I love the one I have, I am not happy with the top of it. The top of the wig feels crunchy and I can see little pieces sticking up. The top of the wig looks like they just hot glued the hair on the lace not threading it through. While John says that you can’t see it, I can feel it. I decided to see if I could find an affordable wig online. I found one that was only $27. I love the top as it has a piece of rubber that the hair comes out of so that when I wear it, it looks like my actual scalp. So I thought I would show you guys both pictures and then take a little poll to see which one you like better. So which is it long or short?
