No Chemo Yesterday
So, I got to chemo, got hooked up and everything and then my blood work came through. Hank thought about giving it to me, but thought it would be better to wait. My platelet CT was the lowest it had ever been and it just made him nervous to give me chemo, but not nervous to send me away and make me come next week. I went home exhausted (mainly from the mental crap that you have to do to get there only to be sent home) and finished cleaning my carpets (fallout for Africa's last moments) when I noticed my port was leaking blood all over my shirt. I tried to stop the bleeding, but it just kept pouring out like a stream with no evidence of stopping....MMMMM better call.......Nurse answers and says, "You were what? Cleaning carpets with what size machine? Angie, do you know you are a cancer patient?" They are really nice there....really. Anyhoo, apparently you are not suppose to do anything heavy like for a little while after having your port accessed. So, after laying down with direct pressure for 45 minutes, it stopped. Hey, at least the carpet is clean and I got to enjoy an amazingly sunny 65 degree day! We will try again next Monday. Love, Ang

Sounds like something I would have done! YAY...another opportunity to get a ton done (and push myself too hard in the process)! Hang in there...
Enjoy your week off and the Easter Bunny this weekend.
Hey, when you need to get it done, just do it.
Seriously, I'm so sorry about Africa. Napping with an animal is about the best medicine there is.
Thinking of you and may your chocolate bunny decapitate quickly.
I don't know how you do it! I'm glad you had clean carpets after all of that. I find it totally amazing that you found the energy to even attempt cleaning your floors. It must be the season of the energizer bunny. Save some of that energy and have fun with your kids over Easter.
