Hey Aaron,
How are things going? Did you go for round 7 yesterday?
I had quite the day. My pick line wouldn't return blood so I had to get Altaplased again.
That took an hour. I was scheduled for chemo at 10. Got a call at one that my count was too low again, but doctor said I could to Neupogen and so got chemo at about 2:30.
I start the Neupogen on Friday for five days. So, happy to say that I wasn't sidelined again.

How are you doing my friend? Did you have any ill effects from the Neupogen?

Yes, Aaron, please do check in, if only a sentence or so. I know the feeling ! I have done that 12 cycles of r-abvd also, as you know.

Would like to hear from a number of folks:

Aaron, Lisha, Beth, others (and hopefully Denise/KIm).

Hope you're all doing well.

Hi y'all, it seems I went and got a nasty case of bronchitis , it seems all I've done is cough and fight a fever sence Friday. Me and the doc decided to try to knock this stuff out once and for all before starting the second half so I've got a week off. I really just want to do my last six infusions on time and get it behind me. I'm on an anti viral med wich I believe is working and she gave me 5 days of prednisone and some serious cough syrup to get this ridiculous cough under control. It seems everything is improving so I should be good to go come Tuesday. I'm glad to hear your staying on schedule and hanging tough with your treatments Sharlene. I'm here and I'll write back, I promise.

Hey Aaron,

Sorry about the bronchitis - nasty stuff.
Drink plenty of fluids to help clear that stuff from your lungs.

Good to hear from you!

Hey Aaron,
Sorry to hear that you are benched again! They almost had me sit out too because of my low counts but I was pushing to stay on track and thankfully my extended medical will cover all of the Neupogen shots. My counts are getting lower each time, so I figured better to get the shots and get the counts up, especially with flu season right around the corner!
I sure hope that you are feeling better soon! Keep us posted.
