RATS! Things can change at the drop of a hat. I thought I would be able to spend tomorrow cooking as I got all the transfusions today. Reds would give me energy and platelets meant I could make use of my knife skills. BUT... I started having fever and chills while I was getting my platelets. The rash got a lot worse, so when I finished the transfusion I had to go down and see the doc. All these symptoms are not good for a neutropenic person. I am now in the hospital. I felt better for a while, but now not so much. I think I'm gonna ask for a Lortab soon.
I'll be getting IV antibiotics, anti-fungals and anti-viral medications. Not sure how long I will be here. They want me to stay until my neutrophils get back up to 0.5. I haven't had a reading that high since the 17th of December. This whole slew of new drugs may help. It could be I have some kind of low grade infection that's keeping the neutrophils down.
So once again I ask for your healing thoughts, prayers, good karma and anything else you use that might help. And I thank you all in advance.
