Hit by the Train

Good morning! As you can see I have not posted in a few days. The weekend did a number on me. I woke up Friday night with terrible chills, no fever, and by morning had a pounding headache and a 101.9 fever. According to my doc instructions I was to call if I had a fever over 100.5 with chills. I had to go into the infusion clinic at Froedert for a blood test to check my white count. They said it would be unusual for my blood count to drop that quickly (it usually happens about a week out). Blood work was fine, my fever came down and they called it a fluke but to keep an eye on it in case the fever went up. I layed on the couch with a nasty headache and body aches all day and night. I slept pretty well last night and today feel somewhat human, although not my usual self. Hopefully, I will get better as the day goes on.

Gail, I am sorry you weren't feeling the best. It does just creep up on you like that, and believe me its not fun. I had a hard time til my 3rd treatment and then I think my body got use to what was happening and what drugs it was getting and I made it through the 6 treatments just fine. Hang in there and no I am praying for you. Did you get your wig yet? Happy Sunday to you! Connie

Hey Connie! This weekend has kind of sucked but hopefully I am on the upswing. I did get another fever today and ended up laying around the house again. I am getting my wig on Wednesday.
