Chemo Update

The white blood cell booster shot I got yesterday did the trick and my counts were high enough for me to get chemo today. Hooray.

On the downside: the new antibiotic doesn't seem to be working very well. My cough still hasn't improved. I sure hope this doesn't turn into something serious and I die of pneumonia or something like that when I've got cancer looming over me.

Today was my third dose of the new chemo regimen. I'm supposed to have eight and then a PET/CT scan to see if the chemo's working. But I'll have a liver ultrasound after my next dose to see if we can see anything on the liver. It's not a very accurate test, but it's better than waiting for another month to find out whether the cancer is spreading or not.
