I’ve got some magic cells y’all. Dr. Potkul said at my appointment this morning he thought for sure he’d be seeing me in the hospital yesterday. Nope. Not this girl. Instead I’m in da chemo chair for round 3.
How magic are my cells you ask? My count was over 5 today. 5! Give me a challenge cancer! Nevermind, I take that back, got a little too cocky. You’ve challenged me enough.
I am getting pretty nervous over here though. On Friday when I was being admitted, they asked if I had an advanced directive to which I replied, “it’s only a fever!” (I’m told it’s a standard question.) Anyways, the chemo machine is plugged in so when I have to go to the bathroom, I have to be unplugged. It is quite concerning how quick my Mom jumps up to pull the plug & how big the smile is on her face while doing it. I won’t be writing her into the paperwork! Kevin meanwhile is sitting in the corner, not sure if he’s ok with this kind of joking 😂.
I’ve got the dream team of chemo nurses today. All my faves – Carmen, Dawn & Justine. That’s more good luck. Here’s to third time being a charm in terms of no complications. I will be getting a shot 24 hours after my last day this week to help with my counts, so fingers crossed I won’t have to battle neutropenia anymore.
I did learn today that I’m slated for 5 rounds, not 4. Shoooot. So we are downhill after this week. Mid March, we’ve got our eyes on you.
We are also slated to head home finally today. Kevin worked his butt off yesterday, as did the carpet & furniture cleaners. Paisley got groomed again. Moe & Sheila have been so awesome for keeping the dogs for us. We got a video of Hadley saying she would keep Toews, I always knew she was a smart kid!!
Can’t. Wait. For. Our. Bed!! Here’s to a smooth week. A smooth couple of weeks really.
