Chemo Update

Yesterday was my first day of chemo. It went really well. No issues. No major side effects as of yet. Unfortunately my white blood cell count is a little lower than they would like, so they will be retesting me for that. They said to limit visitors and going out to keep me safe because of the low white blood cell count. Luckily we are introverts in this house, so that is our usual plan.

I had some wonderful people help me to get ready for the chemo appointments by sending care packages. So I had almost everything I needed. Plus, because of the white blood cell count issue, they put me in a private consultation room so I wasn’t in a room with anyone else or out in the waiting room. So I was fairly comfortable with my books, snacks, and streaming TV shows.

I get to do this twice next week, but I know now how to be more prepared for a longer day. (Yesterday was a half day.)

  1. Well since you granted permission, I guess it is okay.

    I found another live-in job. That solves the problem of the job and a place to rest my head down at night.

    The only issue now is the pay is half of what I used to work for here, but based on what I was told, it seems the workload is going to be a lot less. I really hope that is the case.

    I gotta move out of here tomorrow the latest. I have a ride organize, hopefully all goes well.

    Also if you don’t see me around, it is because that house has no interest access and I will basically be moving so far out into the country side, that I will be very close to the edge of the island.

    I will have to try and get to the the Public Library in town once a week. If you don’t hear from me in a while, you know why that is.

    Take care of yourself until I can touch base with you again.

  2. I am so happy you found a place! Maybe if the workload is less, you can write more? I hope you have a way to do that, even without internet. Then publish on library days! I hope all goes smoothly and that I hear from you soon. Still praying for you!
