Today was markedly better than yesterday. And yes, Cheryl, although I did not mention it in yesterday’s blog I did puke yesterday. I had been trying really hard to convince myself that I was less nauseous than I had been and I misplayed it and ended up throwing up before breakfast. Proof that the power of positive thinking is not always enough.
Today my numbers are still in the trenches but still my WBC doubled from 0.04 to 0.08, platelets are 14 and hematocrit at 24.7.
I haven’t napped since this morning and It was only thirty minutes compared to my typical two hours. I am starting to feel a little bit bored so that must be a good sign.
Sarah has been force feeding me liquids, constantly filling my cup with ice and whatever beverage I have around. If I can drink enough I can earn some time disconnected from the IV pole.
We watched a Sex and the City marathon today and had a lovely visit from my niece Jen.
I am going to use the power of positive thinking to have the way I feel today be a trend and not just a blip, which will also make it more likely that I’ll be able to come home sooner.
