I have been waiting for this clinic visit for about a month. I've become obsessive wanting to know what her blood counts are. Her last clinic visit I expected her counts to be higher than they were so this time I expected to be blown out of the water, but no...still a little low. The doctors are perfectly fine with her numbers, it is just me being obsessive. To those who understand the whole number game...Platelets were 111 and ANC just barely above 1000. I guess I am expecting too much. I just want NORMAL. Today Dr. Fluchel (one of our favorites!) said that Kristen's chemo was very intense and with some patients it can take a year before they are back to "life before cancer." Kristen had to have a finger poke for the blood test and she was truly amazing! She also had to have a shot...again she was amazing! Just a little "Owie" came from her and then she gathered up her purse and said, 'Let's go!"
Once again thanks to my family and friends who continue to check on us.
And a little prayer for
Kristen and all her
Friends who are truly angels inspiring us all.
