Day 6

So I guess it wouldn't be chemotherapy if I didn't throw up atleast once, right! That happened at about 2 am this morning. I had just taken some oral Ativan, but that was no use. I did feel much better afterwards- so all in all, not too bad.

This morning was rougher than usual. I slept most of the day due to complete exhaustion. This is all due to the cell death occuring in my body. My legs are like jello, rather than stiff like they usually are. Unfortunetly, the lack of strength will get worse before it gets better. But it seems late afternoon I tend to get my second (well actually 1st) wind and I am much more energized and can be somewhat productive.

The Doctors expect I will be neutropenic by tomorrow, which means I will not be able to leave the room due to high susceptibility to infection. But the sooner the numbers drop- the sooner they can rebound- and I can go home :)

My WBC as of 11/18- is 2.22

At the bottom of the blog I added a poll- feel free to take part and leave your opinion!
I am working on getting pictures and videos on here as well.
Stay posted :)
As always- thanks for the love and support!
