She is doing well over all. Her white blood cell count is still quite low. When she goes in tomorrow to get her pump disconnected, she is going to get an injection of Neulasta which is a long acting granulocyte stimulating factor to increase her white blood cell count so her immune system can work properly. I have heard that this injection costs several thousand dollars for one injection. They told us the main side effect is bone pain because it works in the bone marrow. Hopefully it's not too bad.
Today, has been an anomaly, she has not felt terribly ill. She has been up and actually went shopping which she has never done the day after chemo... it makes me wonder if she actually got the chemo. We are not complaining about the way she feels, in fact we are really hoping she feels this well tomorrow and the rest of the week. It's just so strange how unpredictable things are. In fact tonight I think I feel more tired than she does... I think I'll go to bed.
