Since Monday was a holiday, my chemotherapy appointment was moved to early Tuesday morning followed by radiation treatment in the afternoon. Dr. Barbara, my oncologist, does not have clinic hours on Tuesday’s so I did not see her today. Blood work first, then directly to the oncology lab for my chemo. My white blood cell count was down to 3.8 this week, which is just below the “normal” range low of 4.0. But not low enough to prevent me from receiving my chemo treatment.
These chemo treatments don’t take a long as the previous chemotherapy regimen of 3 chemo drugs. We were home my noon. After lunch, I worked for a couple of hours before leaving for my radiation treatment at 3:00pm. After the treatment, we met with the radiation oncologist. My mouth is looking good – no mouth sores – but my tongue has a white coating. The doctor suggested rinsing with aloe vera juice. Swallowing is fine and I’m eating solid foods without any difficulty.
Feeling fine. Continuing to work. Thanks for all your prayers!
