I've been doing pretty good today. Still a bit down (home sick) but overall I'm feeling better.
Went to the clinic and they got more blood which showed WBC 1.02 up from yesterday and my Platelets were 31 still low but both were up. It also showed a Atypical lymphoma cell which I was guessing it was my cancer cells, which got me a bit further down. They gave me my shots and another bag of Vancomycin. I need to be there tomorrow at 8:30 for another round. Sunday will be a day of rest and I will give myself the shots and Monday they will start pulling off my stem cells. The one thing I wished the clinic would understand that everyone doesn't "fit" into a standard, normal, protocol, routine. Like "You have to take you Compazine" (anti nausea medication). So, trying not to rock the boat I've been doing everything they tell me. BUT, I kept telling myself that I just didn't feel quite right so I stopped taking it for the last two days and I've felt much better. EVERY anti nausea medication has made me nausea.
Another thing. With all the Chemo I've had in the past, my blood values were NEVER out of the range of normal and this dumbfounded the nurses and my oncologist at home. He always told me that it was good that I was doing so good post chemo. I've always taken a dose of powder Glutathione, vitamin C, multi vitamins, CoQ10 400 mg. and got Detoxed every other day at my local Chiropractor's office. All this made me feel good and in my mind, it was working to keep my lab values from getting out of whack. BUT, my oncologist wants me not to take any of it noting "Vitamin C has been shown that it has encapsulated cancer cells" Did I do something wrong??? Maybe I should have not taken all that stuff before and maybe my labs do need to drop. That's what's been going through my head today. Cathy continues to remind me that God is in control of all things so I have to just let him handle me and I will be fine. If cancer cells are not being encapsulated by me not taking the vitamin C...this is good.
Katie tells me my cat is not doing well and she is going to take him to the Vet tomorrow. He is 12 or 13 and I think his weight loss is due to his age but he could have something else going on so we will see.
Mom is doing well and Oliver had his last swim meet for the year and he is very glad it's all over with. Mom said she gave McKenna a kiss for her old Poppie. I miss my grand baby!
Keith's Mom and Dad flew in today and it was great seeing them. Keith fixed another great meal and we had fun sitting around shootin the breeze.
I will let you know how things go tomorrow. Heading to bed.
