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!
