05/23/09 - 19 shots/weeks to go :)

May 23, 2009 - 0 comments

For some reason, seeing less than 20 seems reachable, Hopefully, I can maintain my meds, since my neutrophils have dropped to 400.  All this work and then my doc wants to cut my meds.  Got my hair cut a little more today, it's almost short.  It was looking so dry & thin.  She did a very nice job, it looks healthly again.  

My hubby says he is starting his tx next week, we shall see.  He keeps deferring it.  But, it was a good idea that we staggered the tx's.  I was like a zombie in the early months.  Two zombies would not have been good.

Shot 27 on 05/08/09 - Hb up to 10.1

Had labs done last week and called the nurse.  After 4 weeks of procrit, my hb is up to 10.1 and I was feeling pretty good last Thursday & Friday.  See the doctor and will get copies of the labs this week.

Shot 25, Week 25 (04-24-09)  Passed the 1/2 way mark.

Took my 25th shoot last night which means I'm starting week #25 of 48.  Not feeling so bad today.  The procrit must have kicked in after 2 full weeks.  It seemed like the 9.1 hb was tolerable even though I was soooooo tired and moved sooooo slow.  But, when the hb dropped to 9.0, ugh!  Of course, by that time I was taking the procrit and may have been feeling sx from that, I'll never know.  

april 10 - 23rd shot down

Took my 23rd shot, 25 remaining.  hemoglobin has fallen to 9.0 from 9.1 last month.  Starting the procrit.  I was a little nervous because I heard the shot was a little painful but it wasn't.  Seems like I feel a little bad on Friday's for some strange reason.  I hope my body isn't craving the interferon ??  I've been feeling pretty good with the exception of heavy fatigue.  So, I'm walking v e r yyyy slow but I'm still walking.

My back feels like alligator skin and itchy.  My hair is falling out in sheets which is very annoying especially when it touches my dry itchy skin.  I could be a tester for creams, I have just about every one on the market.  None really work well.

Easter is Sunday and I am just too tired to shop for the family this year.  I tried going to the store but had to leave -- I'm almost painfully fatigued.  Probably in-part due to the low Hb
