Well, because the mornings start so early....the days go for a VERY long time! Plus last night I was messenging a girlfriend on the Gold Coast and then Piper got online around midnight my time....OOopsy.
Anyway - Olga (my favourite nurse) was here last night and she popped in at 6.30am (!!) for infusion 1 for the day....all fine and normal/expected now. Mind you - it's very hard to go back to sleep once you've had 1-2 litres of fluids pumped through your body....so awake I was.
Lucky for me - I had been given a 'job' overnight (with a couple more potential 'jobs' lined up) so I got to work on my VERY SLOW computer doing this. It was super satisfying. However I feel I was done by breakie #2...Oops.
I do have 'real work' that I can do but the connection is so slow here that it can wait until I'm back in Australia and homebound.
I can't believe I have only about 12 days left til I fly home!! That's NOTHING!!
My levels today are still going down. Dr F expects they'll turn around Monday....fingers crossed. Info for the experts is: Haemoglobin: 86 Leucolytes: 0.24 Platelets 90. All fine I'm told. My temperature is playing up a little and this arvy crept up to 37.1 but after a lay down and drink it was back to 36.8 so not sure what's up with that. They're monitoring all the time (as am I almost every hour) so it's all good. It'll just mean an infusion of antibiotics I think if it goes over 37.5.
So this afternoon was spent doing....do you know what - I have no idea. I was on the computer for a bit....played some brain teaser games...read for a bit....talked to Mum, Andy and Piper and here we are at dinner time! Sweet. Another day done.
I'm bypassing tonight's dinner for a stash of fried rice a fellow patient left me...I just can't come at the buckwheat today....
So...other than BORED ... I'm good. Still happy, supported, comfortable, etc. I'm quite weak today but Dr F says that's because of the dropping Leukocytes so all good.
Time for dinner, cuppa, alcohol wash, gargle, bed. Let's see where tomorrow takes us!
Sorry - boring day leads to boring post.....
