Today is Monday, YAY!! I am going to have my "port" checked out . I think that sounds kind of funny..like I am a ship yard or something...But when I called and spoke with the nurse, I asked her if it was normal for some itching and that my neck bothered me. (I have a catheter in my vein, gross) she said it's normal, it's forming scar tissue..lovely! Maybe I can get all of this tape off of me at least today.
This afternoon I get to have my blood drawn. We have to check my blood counts every week while on Chemo, to check my white cells. If I am at a low white count, I am at a greater risk of infection...so no little kids or people with swine flu, bird flu, sars, or anything else like a cold, or an imagined illness. . . Last thing I want is back in the hospital, NO WAY!! so hoping for good white cell count. I ate some steak last night (like that's gonna help...I probably need to eat liver or something gross like that and that is not going to happen, so no LIVER meals, liver pate, chopped liver or anything that resembles it please!)
Ok, well got to get back to work, getting a lot of "no one is in today", what the heck, yesterday was the holiday...
Oh yeah, I may go look for a wig, I am still waiting for my hair to fall out, (I'm not wishing for it to happen, when if it does I am sure it will freak me out), but I am still thinking I want Laurie Camou hair, or something like that :)
