So I found out this morning that my platelet levels are too low to do the chemo today. I will get my blood tested again on Monday and hopefully start next week. I am a little disappointed to not be starting now, but at least I can enjoy a sixty degree day!
I had my lumbar puncture yesterday. It went fine, as long as lumbar punctures go! I got one of the residents that has definitely improved since I first had him. And the technician knew I was a little tense and started giving me margarita recipes to try out when I can drink again. True-it doesn't make me forget that there is a needle in my spinal cord, but I appreciate her effort all the same! :)
My family has a sick sense of humor and finds the funny in weird situations. So, of all things, the Obama campaign called for me yesterday to ask me to join their campaign. My mom answered and said that since I'll be starting chemo, I'll probably not be the best campaigner for them. The lady on the phone totally flipped out, asked how I was doing, and ended with offering positive thoughts and prayers for me. Not sure the lady wasn't even crying!
