Hi all, Was scheduled to start the new chemo today, FOLFIRI. I've been feeling really bad since before I even went in to the hospital last Friday. When I went today all my blood counts were really low, red, white, platelet and hemoglobin. They gave me an injection and said I will have to have it every two weeks. They also cancelled all of this round. Will recheck blood Wednesday and if ok, I'll start round then. Please pray that my counts will come up enough to have the chemo, The tumor is growing, so I really need to have this. Thanks to everyone for being there for me through this very long journey. Love you all.
Love and prayers, Judy

Dear Judy, I'm praying that your body rebounds quickly for he chemo; but, in the meantime you can rest and recup. You went through a lot last week; maybe this break is what your body needs. Was the injection Procrit; gosh, it really helped my RBC-hemoglobin. Iknow you are anxious for chemo to start. i hope all goes well. It seems that your doc is really working on your behalf. Take care and know that my thoughts are with you. Maura

Wow, Judy, I am so impressed with your strong spirit. I am thinking about you and praying for you. Maybe you'll just do this chemo thing in your own way, slowly and a little at a time. We are with you all the way.

Hi Judy,

I hope that this weekend will give your body the rest that it needs and that it will be ready to start again next Wednesday.

I'll keep you in my prayers.
