May 10th Energizer bunny

Dominique is doing really well lately.  Her last dose of chemo is obviously wearing off as she is more energized and spends more time crawling laps around the living room.  Makes me realize how rough the treatment is on her.   

Our next appointment at the clinic is Tuesday, May 14th at 9:15 am for blood work   If everything checks out, then her 3rd cycle of chemo is set for the 15th, 16th and 17th.  Dominique is off her antibiotics to help her blood recover.  I found out her ANC count has to be at .75 or 1 for her to start.  The last count was 0.46.  The normal range of ANC in her blood is 3.0 to 10.

I guess we aren’t the only one’s to have a setback/delay.  Dominique’s little friend Alexandra was supposed to do her last cycle of chemo and she got shingles (very scarey & dangerous situation) and was hospitalized in isolation for a week.  So it looks like we may end up in the clinic together again next week.

Time spent in the hospital on that day: no time!
