Liz's colonic journey

Round 2 Underway

Well I passed the blood test.Feels almost as good as the stats test in 3rd year Psycho! Apparently, the white cells are a bit high, possibly some infection, but not bad enough to halt the chemo. I learned that if the red cells are too low they give a blood transfusion, if white cells or platelets are weird then they defer the chemo.

The center is quite jolly this morning. Amazing how people can joke about finding veins, deal practically with some really scary stuff.

I have permission to not wear a bra! So all good – nearly finished the first bag of anti- nausea muti. Seems there’s a shortage of magnesium & calcium which is to prevent the pins and needles that result from the blood vessel inhibiting stuff, so today’s session is going to be half an hour shorter.

Talk later – have some cricket to watch!
