An Unexpected Trip
After a wonderful Sunday of rest and worship, I brewed a fever of 100.8F Sunday evening. Since my white count is low and I am taking shots to boost it, we called the doctor to see what we needed to do. He suggested a STAT CBC. Monday morning we drove up to the cancer center for the blood draw and results. Dr. Cunningham (Dr. Chen is off on Monday) said the white count was not "mortally dangerous" but low enough to suggest I might not do chemo this week to give my white count a chance to revive. I am also suffering from severe fatigue. The slightest thing exhausts me. Hopefully, the rebounding blood levels will end this, please pray accordingly.
