Well, neutropenia again but, at least WBC is >0.5...Lol. Also have thrush again. I have had minimal fever today-yay. Although I don't really like the way it zonks me, I took marinol yesterday and today because it really helps my appetite. I was able to really force fluids after taking it yesterday and I think that is why temp is better.
Of course, now I have mouth sores and thrush again. Ugh. I never had thrush ever until last chemo. Now I am afraid it may be a monthly chemo thing.
I have a call into onc about WBC and thrush. Chemo nurses don't think onc will give neupogen as I just got neulasta on Friday.
Praying I don't spike a fever and end up in hospital. Otherwise, overall doing better. Took a walk this am and took 2 yesterday. Trying to regroup and build up my strength. I really, really miss puttering in my garden, but don't dare go near it right now--all I need is poison ivy or some weird infection.
Danny has hired a neighbor boy (he calls him his little minion...Lol) to help with weeding. He does an hour or two every day and, although he not as thorough as we are, he is doing a good job and I am lucky to have him helping. We have 1/2 acre and it feels big right now.
Love to you all!!!
