My first Rituxan maintenance that I was fretting about so much is behind me. I got many smiles and warm hugs at the clinic and that was really nice. I had some errands today and that was tough--but I did it and that makes me happy. I was away from home for about 4 hours, went 5 different places, and now I am tired! Yesterday, my blood counts were still low. My doctor didn't seem to be so happy that they hadn't come up more than they have. I am still anemic and my white counts are low (both chemo induced). My platelets and neutrophils are in the normal range but just barely there. Doc said if the counts weren't back up in 2 months, when I go back for my next infusion, he will want to do a bone marrow biopsy. Oh no. . . please not that!!
