2 Pints and 7 hours later and I feel great

So Yesterday I went to the Hospital to receive a blood transfusion. I received 2 pints of blood because after each round of chemo my body is having a harder time building itself back up so it needed a little help.

So I was also supposed to start round 5 today but because of my below parameters blood count and impending radiation treatment I did not. So I am still waiting to hear back from the Radiation Oncologist to start radiation. I have been wearing th radiation stickers on my chest for 3 weeks now. I do sure wish he would call so that we can continue the treatment.

Well I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and have a Happy New Year. 2009 should be an amazing year for everyone. There will be up and downs but it is all about perspective.

Shots: 43

Pills: 125

Pints of Blood: 4

I read the title of this post and I thought, wait a minute he's got cancer he can't go for 2 pints down his local pub. Then I read it properly. Good luck with everything.
