Much to my shock mom got chemo today. The reason I was shocked may sound strange. When they did mom’s blood draw last week her numbers were pretty good. The nurse believed the double dose of chemo wouldn’t knock them down too far and said she would be surprised if mom couldn’t get chemo this week. Sooo because I thought she would get chemo this week it made me actually think she may not. Glass half empty, sure. But at this point I just try to keep my expectations low when it comes to chemo and then I get to be pleasantly surprised.
So anyways, today is week 2 of cycle 2 and week 3 is just a week off of chemo. So technically she hasn’t completed cycle 2 but she has completed the chemo portion so I just consider it done. So next week is possibly a blood draw to check in with her cells and make sure everything is going good. And if her good cells (hemoglobin, WBC & platelets) are still in that safe chemo range she will start cycle 3 the week of March 27th.
**Thank you everyone for your continued love and support and prayers as we go through all of this. It really means the world to us knowing that so many wonderful people are thinking of us.**
