Once again my WBCs have finked out on me, and I could not have chemo.  My platelets are up, but the WBCs are still way too low to be treated.

So, so frustrating.  The doctor thinks I will only be able to be treated twice a month, which is much less than originally planned.

The worst part is that I premedicated as if I were going to be treated, so I have the aftereffects of the prednisone to deal with. (Hungy, irritable, restless...you know, like I usually am.) On the way home from the doctors's office, I told my Dad I had a huge craving for a good doughnut, so he stopped at a local grocery store that has an awesome bakery, and he got 6 cream-filled powdered doughnuts.  The funny thing was, shortly after I got home and devoured one, my neighbor called and asked me if I wanted a doughnut.  Today is Fasnacht Day, so bakeries have plenty of these tempting treats.  I said "Sure!," then told her about stopping for doughnuts on the way home from the doctor.  She said, "Oh well, this one will just replace the one you already ate."

I like the way she thinks!

  2. I didn't even know that until she told me. Maybe the sugar will help my WBC to bounce back. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

  3. Well, my neighbor brought a box with 4 doughnuts, and they were awesome. They were made with potato dough, and they were generously doused in 10x sugar. I'm ashamed to admit I ate a whole doughnut, but too stuffed for supper now.
