Neutraphils..neurophils..neutranewphapilaphils?

21 Dec

Whatever they are..I don’t have enough of them so I can’t have my chemo today 😦 Am waiting for PICC line to be put in and then I am outta here. Home in time for christmas..or so it’s looking. I have to come back on Wednesday to have my chemo – IF my neutraphie….things are back up to 1. I don’t know why I can’t remember what they are called because I posted about them the other day. Yeah so stuck in  hospital until my PICC line is put in – which was meant to have been done by now..

I’ve had a shower and I literally had handfulls of hair all over the place.. Yum.

PICC line timeeeee – Will post later.

    Hope you guys are home safe and warm and not been bothered by the snow travel problems. Russ’ sister and brother in-law have been stranded in Reading and got themselves booked into a hotel and are gonna watch a movie, rather than walk the 10 miles home, as recommended by the local police…

        I have yet to look at it thoroughly, but it looked packed full of info …. all American of course …eg temp in degrees F rather than C, but still quite useful!
        I don’t know what my blood count is like, but am hoping that the injections that I had after my chemo will have boosted it somewhat (I think it was called ‘lenograstim’..?). Perhaps they’ll give you something like that next time…. although I have a week before my blood test to see if it worked!
        Hope it goes well tomorrow,
        lots of love,
        Deb x
