FINALLY!!! Chemo cycle #13 is done.
On Friday Karly was finally able to get one more cycle of chemo behind her. Her platelets had gone up, but her white blood count had dropped. Her ANC level(which is a combination of the blood counts) was NOT where it normally should be for chemo therapy, but the doctor did not want to delay chemo any longer. Karly goes back in to the clinic on Tuesday for lab work.
The BEST nurse in the clinic moved to another position in the hospital. Heather, Dr. Herzog's nurse, is awesome! Karly basically refused to let anyone but Heather access her port. We went and tracked Heather down Wednesday, we were already missing her and it had only been 3 days since she left the clinic! :) I guess we understand that better hours and better money are hard to pass up. We sure would like to be selfish and keep her at the clinic for US!
Karly and I have already watched the new Twilight movie, New Moon, twice and it just came out on Friday. We went to the midnight showing on Thursday night and then went again on Friday with Carmen from the clinic. I think we may be a little cazy!
