No Gemzar

My husband drove me to my chemo treatment. Honey, thank you for giving up your basketball for me! I had my blood drawn and we waited. Started getting queasy just being there! Two hours later, I got the news. My neutrophil levels (white blood cells that fight infection) were too low at 0.7. Disappointing. I need a 1.5 or above to get chemo.

The nurse had to call my oncologist. Dr. K said to skip this dose and try again next week.

Please pray for my neutrophil counts to go up. Also, pray that I don't get sick during that time.

At least I got to spend time with my husband and eat a yummy lunch with him!
