Back in the hospital, finishing the fifth round of therapy. Back in the Pediatrics corner room with a great view of the sunset.
This second week of the cycle has become a bit trying. I went into the ER last night for iv fluids and then back this am for the chemotherapy.
Something new today. My phosphorous was quite low so some of that is running in now. My toes feel as though there are tight bands around the bases of my big toes. Surprisingly this is not painful, just odd. After some correction and the rotisserie routine, I actually feel pretty well. Had chicken and corn for dinner.
The other new thing involves a low blood count. Normally by now it would be near normal; not today. So I will get a white cell stimulating shot tomorrow, promised to give me bone pain. At least I will get to go home. Dietary limitations are in order to avoid unusual infection. This will make my menu much more boring.
Sigi, our 15 year old daschund, is not moving very well. Maybe there is something the vet can do.
