Tuesday 17th September… clinic time!

I had my clinic yesterday, the first one since I had the cytarabine last week. To cut to the chase, the red cell count was down which explains lack of energy and stamina, but I’m having a blood transfusion later today which should help things.

My white cell count was about the same as last week, which was a bit disappointing, but it does indicate that the chemo has halted the progression and it is only a week since I had the chemo, so the hope is that they will start falling.

My kidneys are grumbling a bit, so there is a possibility that I might be admitted for a short time to sort them out. But generally good news with a treatment plan!

It was a long day though. I had to have bloods done and they weren’t analysed when I saw Professor Johnson. The next message was that one sample had clotted befor analysis, so I had to have another sample taken. And then I had to have yet another for crossmatching with the transfusion blood. All in all I was in the hospital for seven hours. Quite tired when I got home!

But overall, grounds for optimism so Onwards and Upwards!
