Hopefully, this is not all just in my head because it feels like I'm getting stronger. After GI issues dominated day 3 and day 4, I was exhausted pretty much all day yesterday (day 5). Today, I feel a bit stronger even though my lab work this morning showed that my counts are still zero (as expected). I'm looking forward to getting Neupogen tomorrow (even though it's an injection) to kick start my counts. It sounds like I may get some platelets tomorrow too. I've had a bunch of family members and friends in the Tampa area donate blood and/or platelets, so I'll probably get some "family platelets". We learned an interesting fact today. Platelets normally have a yellow color when they're being infused...unless they were donated by a woman on birth control. In that case, they have a green color. A little knowledge for you to drop during your upcoming Memorial Day barbeque parties.
We had a nice surprise yesterday when Jen's best friend Lara drove over to Tampa from her home in Ormond Beach. Even though I spent most of the day napping, it was nice for Jen and Lara to have a fun afternoon together.
I'll post again tomorrow after I get the Neupogen!
