sing this to yourselves while you are reading it to the tune of “the twelve days of Christmas”
“On the eve of Christ-mas the oncology department gave to me no chemo for toda-ay and a neutrophil count of zero point three” LOL
As OD says she doesnt know whether to go Yay!! or Booo!! The good thing is that i will be able to enjoy christmas more not suffering the usually queasiness that follows chemo. But it is a bit of a worry that my neutrophil count is so low. I have an assessment with the oncologists on Tuesday so I guess we will discuss whether or not this is going to be the best treatment for me long term – I also managed to convince them to change my chemo appointment for the 31st to later in the day so I can have a birthday lunch with the kids before chemo. Not quite how I had envisaged spending my 47th birthday but at least I’m still here to enjoy it.
