So they’re not great, but they’re not so bad, either. Rio’s CBC is back and her white blood count is at 2500. Last time the white cells were at 3700 (when we started chemo, they were at 9700). So yeah, they’re down some. Her neutrophils and leukocytes are down, too. However, the Cerenia seems to be doing the trick, because she DEVOURED her dinner this evening. Appetite back, whew, mom can breathe again. Even so, the onco dr. was concerned enough that she wants to see Rio tomorrow. So, bright and early we’ll be loading up for a trip down to Tacoma.
Me, I’m just thankful that the appetite is back (with a vengeance — I nearly lost a finger!) and the tummy has quieted. The gas mask can go back on the shelf for a little while. She’s a lot more comfortable, tonight. Instead of laying on the couch, staring glassy-eyed, belly bloated and churning, she’s snoozing. And even better for me, no bad smells emanating from the end that’s pointed my way!!!!
