Today I had my last CBC before going in for the harvest on Monday morning. I feel ok, but my counts are all lower than ever.
|WBC||0.4||x10^3/uL||4.5 – 10.5|
|Hgb||9.4||g/dL||11.0 – 18.0|
|Plt||63.0||x10^3/uL||150 – 450|
|RBC||3.46||x10^6/uL||4.00 – 6.00|
Cytoxan is powerful stuff, eh?
I took the staff at my oncologist’s office some treats today. They’ve been so nice that I wanted to reward them somehow. The treats are not on the neutropenic diet though, so I was unable to sample. :( Oh well, if all goes as planned, there will be plenty of time for that later on.
Good luck, Beth! I know you’ll come through this just fine. You are constantly in our thoughts.
What’s a neutropenic diet?
Good luck and hoping for a massive collection for you in one shot.
Good luck on your treatments. Attitude is everything. My husband was diagnosed in 1999 with Multiple Myeloma. He had radiation, chemo and a autologus stem cell transplant in 2001. He was 35 when he was diagnosed. He is doing great and no signs of myeloma since. He was treated at H Lee Moffitt Center in Tampa Florida. They were wonderful I hope you get the best of care also.
I’ve been meaning to leave a comment for 3 years. My precious father had MM, dx in June 2002. I read (previoulsy) your blog often for information and support. I felt you were a friend even though you never knew me. I wanted to say thank you for everything and I am excited for your new treatments. I don’t know why I am doing this now..but peace to you and thanks for all you do.
