Everything looks good for Thursday

My white counts are up around 16 again. YAY!! The nuelasta stuff really works.

Strangly, my red counts are up too. Red blood count, hemoglobin, and hemocrit - all up. This is a good thing, but odd. Chemo kills off all the blood cells, and I'm not on Procrit, so no clue how these went up. But I'm not complaining. They aren't up massivly or anything. For example, hemoglobin whent from 13 to 14.1. Both well within the normal range.

I am so, so tired. I could nap right now. I think I could pull a Kyle and nap all evening. Last night I fell alseep on the couch twice, at 5-ish and again at 7:30-ish. Both were about 30 mins. Then I was still dozing, so I went to bed about 10. Wouldn't you know it, I lay awake until 11:30. And it wasn't from the naps, b/c I was still exhausted.

Oh, have I mentioned I still have hair? I'm rather impressed. Its falling out, but not all gone. Whenever I brush it, or wash it, or even run my finger through it, a big wad comes out. But, its coming out evenly, so really, you can't tell. I can tell, but its not that obvious.

One last thing. I had originally planned on updating this daily. But really, there isn't that much to say. "chemo sucks" "I'm tired" "yup, still have cancer" "yup, chemo is still on Thursday" etc So, now I'm just going to update it when I actually have something to say. That is, things are going well, things are going bad, test results come back, etc etc. So, don't freak if there isn't a daily post. :)

Alrighty then, that enough babbling. Lunch break is almost over.

You have a lot to be thankful for: Red count, white count, new bath, many friends, good family and be thankfull that at least you know your hair will return to its full glory and bloom. I on the other hand know mine is gone for the ages. Some people are sooooo! lucky. See ya! hicup

if you end up losing too much hair, you can just start wearing purple lipstick and nail polish and pretend you're goth ;)
