Went to get my blood work redone this AM. Good thing they had restocked the face masks at the lab--I didn't have one with me and the waiting room was full of kids! I grabbed one and put it on--apologizing to the little kid who was staring at me like I was a "bad guy." I don't know what kids think when they see an adult wearing a mask like that. Heck, I don't know what ADULTS think when they see someone wearing a mask.
Afterwards I ran over to Lazizah and got soup and half a falafel wrap--a new choice they offer. The soup was chicken and corn chowder...delicious!
Iffat gave me a slice of challah bread to try...OHMYGOD!! Was it GOOD! It was the first time she had made it and she wanted feedback....I think the sight of me cleaning up every last crumb gave her an indication of my feedback.
She also gave me some black bean and squash soup to take home--to help my platelets. I haven't had it yet, but I'll bet it's yummy!
I came home and to be honest, was exhausted. I felt so yucky. Just from going out and about for that short period of time.
Therefore, I was not surprised when Anne-Marie, the nurse from the Cancer Center, called and told me that my platelets were bad. She said they had only gone up one point since Tuesday...to 24. They want your platelet level to be 100 before they will let you have chemo.
They will reschedule my chemo for next week. I guess I'll have to go again for blood work. UGH!
This will throw off our schedule for the year...if my chemo happened tomorrow, it would put me on a good schedule for our trips to Tennessee in Sept and the cruise in late October. Now it's all off.
Oh well, as I said, may this be the WORST thing that happens! I've been very lucky so far.
This is just a slight glitch. I will survive!
