My best friend in nursing school used to say, "It's always darkest before it goes completely black." She had a terrific sense of gallows humor. I miss that humor and could really use some of it now.
Last week I had an ultrasound to rule out a blood clot. The good news was that there was no clot. The bad news? It looks like I have R heart failure. I will be seeing a cardiologist the end of this month, and from there, who knows? In any case, this probably explains my fatigue as well as my SOB when I go up the steps.
As far as the chemotherapy goes, I couldn't have it again because my counts were still too low. The doctor was fairly certain that next week I will be able to be treated.
