I had bloodwork yesterday and it showed my white and red counts are low. Went in to my pre-chemo appointment and found my blood pressure is also low. I am on a blood pressure medication to keep my heart rate in check. My blood pressure is always normal so I think the meds is bringing it down. The PA put in a call to my cardiologist and he reduced the meds. I am taking two drugs for my heart when he told me my heart is okay. Go figure!
Well, at least I know why I am feeling crappy. I have no energy. Hopefully my counts will go up but nothing is being done to ensure that will happen. I thought they would give me blood or something. I sometimes feel the medical profession is so willy-nilly.
Anyway at least I have another week to feel good before the next chemo. I have been housebound, except for appointments, for a month and before that I had only gone to the grocery store a couple of times to stock up before chemo. I haven't gone shopping for several months. I had been spending all my time with my cousin and didn't feel like shopping while she was so sick. She is still at the rehab, her incision is not quite healed plus she has had a bladder infection and a bout with pneumonia. It never seems to end for her. I haven't seen her since May 28th. It sucks that we are both ill at the same time because we are such support for each other. I miss her.
