I have been feeling, well, I’ve been feeling like myself (yay!) since Monday. I’ve worked out every morning (modified a bit) this week (yay me!). And today when I went for my blood work all of the key blood component numbers are trending up and I am no longer neutropenic. So, while I still can’t shave my legs (low platelets), and I should maybe be feeling tired, which I’m not (low red blood cells), I can garden again and eat sushi if I so choose.
I am feeling very excited by the news. My body is recovering well from the treatment (or tolerating it well as the doctors like to say) even if I do not know yet how well the treatment worked, a couple weeks yet for that.
I have taken to warning whichever nurse is drawing my blood that I did pass out last week, you know, just in case… The nurse today was shocked, she said, “I would never think that Heather would pass out!” – so there’s that!
