Beautiful Days

The weather sure has been nice this week, we deserve it after all the snow we have had the last couple of weeks. I actually went for my treatment on the regular scheduled day, which is Thursday this week with no snow. My counts are still low but they were up a little this week. My WBC was 2.4 that is up from 1, that's where it has been for the past three weeks. I am feeling good, finally pretty much over the crud if that is possible this time of year. Can you really ever get over the crud?
Jonah is going to spend the night with us tonight, it is always fun to have him around. He is growing into quite a little boy, he is so funny. We might even get to go outside to play since the weather is going to be fairly warm, he loves to be outside.

Back To Snow Part II

Well I made it in for treatment on Friday, even though they said we wouldn't get much snow. Clay came out to get me to take me to HOG, I was there a little over two hours then Jeremy came by to pick me up to bring me back home. This was the first time I had been out of the house since last Saturday, partly due to the weather but mostly due to this crud that I have had. My WBC this week was critically low, it was down to 1.3, it hasn't been that low in a long, long time. You just have to be really careful being around other people, right now there are so many bugs out there and this makes me very susceptible to pick up something. Since I have already had the crud I don't need to add another bug to it. I didn't get my chemo delivery before I left home so I was afraid I would miss it, Clay tracked it again to find out that beyond UPS control it would not be delivered until Monday. So ok this was just great, after all the waiting, watching for and wondering, it was not coming. So hopefully it will come today and this nightmare will be over for another month anyway. If we get the next snow storm they are talking about I may have an issue with my treatment again this week. It makes it hard for them to get everyone in when they have either closed for a day or open up at 10 instead of 8 for a couple of days, it throws everyone behind.

And Back To Snow

Wow, what a week we have had, but it sounds like we are in store for another week of much the same. I started with the crud or a bad head cold late Saturday night and I still have it so needless to say I haven't been out of the house this week. I have been waiting two days for my chemo delivery, due to the weather it still hasn't arrived. This has to be shipped from Chicago or Ohio and they are alot worse off weather wise than we are, it has messed me up going to Highland for treatment waiting for it. Normally I go every Thursday but my delivery didn't get here, so they changed my appointment to Friday thinking I would have my delivery on Thursday and I would be good to go. Here it is Friday and still no delivery, just hope it gets here before I have to leave, it's just that I have to be here to sign for it so it makes it hard. Well it just started snowing here again, we are not suppose to get very much this time but it is coming down. Stay warm and safe if you are out and about.
