05.12.2008 - One Hard Week

This week really kicked my butt. I had chemo on 05.09.2008 and was sick all weekend and had to stay home from work on 05.12.2008. I didn't feel that good on 05.13.2008 or 05.14.2008, but was able to work. On 05.15.2008, I had a doctor visit and my white blood cell count was low. That was to be expected due to the chemotherapy and they gave me a shot of Neulasta to boost my WBC count. I felt really tired that day and my boss told me before I left for the appointment to perhaps take a nap before returning to work. When I got home, I slept for about five hours and then had a normal evening and then slept my usual eight hours. 05.16.2008, I finally felt mostly normal. Still not perfect, but close. This may have been the hardest hit I have ever been from the chemo. Not fun.
