Apparently, the chemo is not only attacking my WBC it is attacking the bone marrow overall. Which means my RBC, hemoglobin, platelets, etc. have been getting lower and lower too. So the onc said I needed a blood transfusion. I tell my hubby this and he freaks out...after a few hours I found out he interpreted 'transfusion' as take my blood out and put in some other blood. He didn't realize it meant add more blood. Sometimes you have to be very specific with the male mind...
Transfusion was fine. The benedryl made me sleep most of the day, but I do feel more 'myself' today. (Hopefully that means I can get some junk done.)
