Health Update


Just a minor bit of good news today. The worst side effect1 of my current chemo regimen is that it depresses my immune system. And sure enough, after I started taking it my neutrophil count dropped from 4300 to 2600 to 1800. If it keeps going down it’s going to start causing problems. But even though I’ve increased the dose of the chemo med, yesterday’s labs returned a neutrophil count of 1900, about the same as last month. So maybe it’s going to stabilize there. Hooray!

Also: I feel fine. Energy is fine, sleep is fine, breathing is fine, and my back is (almost) fine. For the time being, everything is fine.

1Assuming I don’t get one of those blood clots the big black box warns about, of course.
