What will the results show today?
It’s Friday and today is round 5 of my chemo treatment. My body is starting to ache from the 2 consecutive days of swimming. I am proud to that I can swim 40 laps each time. This is my personal best thus far and my minimum number of laps each time I swim.
Ok, swimming aside. I am little anxious what my blood test results will be later this morning. The results will decide what course of action I will take. Should there be minimal decrease in the cancer markers, then I may have to revert to using the Carboplatin and Taxotere combination used in my first chemo treatment last year. If my memory serves me right, my oncologist mentioned that she will change to Taxol instead of Taxotere. The white blood cells count will be the other indicator closely monitored. Although I feel physically fine, I am susceptible to catching any cold or virus’ very easily plus my body would have a tougher time to fight should I fall ill. It doesn’t help that my sister and her daughter have not been well over the past week. I just keep a good distance away when possible. My brother in law has a sore ankle to add to the woes. So I have been helping out with the cooking and housework. Not a fun household to be in right now.
I am crossing my fingers and toes for a better blood test results. It is a short post today. I’ll be leaving shortly to head to the doctor’s.
