Got my sixth chemo treatment today while I was in the blue chair in the treatment room all hooked up to pumps and tubes. I'm now hooked up to the portable pump with the 5-FU until Friday. White blood cell count was up just enough to go ahead with treatment after the three Neupogen shots last week but was still pretty low, so I'm scheduled to get four shots next week. Yuck!
Our daughter is coming in from Australia for a two week visit on Monday. I was able to plead with the scheduling nurses and get all the shots scheduled for first thing in the morning so we don't have the four days broken up by mid-day runs to the clinic. Yay!!
Not feeling all that great tonight, having a little nausea for the first time, along with the fatigue and general feeling of malaise. Hopefully tomorrow will be better and I can go back to feeding hummingbirds, playing with the dogs and enjoying Fred and Flo, the pink plastic flamingos with panache. I may change Fred's name to Floyd, what do you think?
