the little c: update

Well, I wish I had better news as things have taken a little turn for the worst. After having such a glowing report from the doctor last time, the following week I got a call saying that chemo was being postponed for a week as my neutrophil (white blood cell) count had fallen dramatically. After my weekly blood draw this week, it was discovered that those numbers had fallen even more, and now I'm in the danger zone of having almost no immune system (I'm considered neutropenic now). So, no chemo for another two weeks...

As I really shouldn't go anywhere because I need to avoid just about everyone at this point since we're well into cold and flu season, I'll have lots of time for reading at home now!
