Was sooooo close to the completion of chemo, today was to be number 5 of 6. My white blood count (abs. neutrophils) were absolutely tanked! It amazes me how I could feel so good, eating well, wonderful walks, hiking and yoga and then boom, some blood work says you are really at high risk for an infection. The abs. neutrophils were .68...the lowest it's ever been is 1.48 and I thought that was low. I feel like I should put myself in a bubble, but the nurses just said avoid crowds, sick people and wash your hands alot. Not sure why they aren't offering the neulasta shot or something. I probably should have asked. Perhaps if next Friday it isn't up they will do that. Now it pushes everything out a week... and I thought I would be done on March 4. Poohey.
