No fevers today, which is good news. I am finally getting mouth sores, which are exactly what they sound like (can also be in the throat) and are caused by the chemo. Mouth sores don't go away until the new immune system starts growing, because you need the white blood cells to heal, and they can make eating and swallowing pretty painful and difficult. So, I am now on a patient controlled pain pump, or a PCA, and I have a little button I can push to get some great pain meds and feel all better.
HGB: 8 (had a blood transfusion today)
PLT: 32 (will probably have a platelet transfusion tomorrow)
The Amish are gone! I was so disappointed when I left my room for my daily walk and they were no longer there. How am I supposed to occupy myself if I can't spy on the Amish anymore?!
