a short late note

Hello everyone
Just a quick note to let you know, Ken and I spent the day trying to make sure we have everything taken care of before chemo tomorrow.
My bloodwork this morning was a bit concerning as the White blood count is low.
The ANC which is what they use to guage whether it is safe to give the next chemo shot stands for "absolute neutrophil count"
It is usually somewheres  above 2500 and the level that is the cutoff for chemo is if it is lower than 1500
Mine is 1155 today, I will have another blood count at cancer centre tomorrow and it will likely be up, if not chemo will be delayed.
This is also the time to be away from sick people......

I will write again in a few days

love and peace
Janet Bates
