Nothing like celebrating your anniversary while getting your chemo! I had mentioned on the way to Dana Farber that today was our 33rd anniversary. Rick had not realized that today was 5/22 so while I was waiting to be connected to the Gemzar, he went out to the local Hallmark store, bought a balloon, card, and truffles. He's pretty special!
We had a little pre-treatment surprise - while my red blood count was OK, my white count was well below the safe range. So we had to discuss whether we'd delay or skip treatment. Or I could have treatment and come back tomorrow afternoon for a Neulasta shot. I did choose this last option as I really didn't want to skip a treatment that has been highly successful. Having the Neulasta shot means I will need to take Claritin for a few days to ward off the bone pain it causes when it stimulates the bone marrow.
Hope everyone enjoys the Memorial Day weekend.
