We had an early chemo appointment today so the morning was a rush. I can’t eat early in the morning so Den packed me a bagel along with our usual assortment of necessary things. Phones, baby iPads, ereaders, Japanese Cracker Snacks, Kind Bars, chargers, gum, mints, lollipops, EarPods, lemon drops, photos of the kitties in case we miss them too much, extra books, journals, and anything else we think we might need for our Four Hour Chemo Stay! We get called in, Den picks out his fave corner cubbie, Den rearranges chairs, tables and all of our stuff including the chemo apparatus and Ronnie The Nurse comes in to take blood…my blood…before we see the doctor. We see the doctor…my much loved Dr, Costello and he says no chemo today. White blood count is too low and chemo would be harmful so we wait until next week and he ordered Neulasta shots so this won’t happen again. Sigh! I am totally exhausted…it’s freezing cold here, the wind is blowing furiously and I can’t believe I am sad to get kicked out of chemo! Plus Neulasta is very painful for me!
I am finishing up this lovely English mystery about a missing girl and a thirty year old cold case. It’s really good. But I am ready for my next book. I want this one to be done!
I am in a mystery kind of mood lately and the ones I have been reading have been incredible…so up next…one or two of these.
Does this monster sandwich from halfbakedharvest look so delicious?
We are making this soup this afternoon. It’s so cold we need a hearty soup along with a crusty baguette and cheese. That will be dinner! It’s mostly vegetables but instead of ground sirloin we use lean bison. Dessert will be one Lindt truffle each…yum!
I am off to rest and read after our trying morning.
