A Letter


Dear Blog


So my Sister had her fourth chemo treatment on Friday,  the 21st. She was fine for the first three days but then the chills set in...chills right to the bone, she said.  Those lasted a few days but now knows the value of wearing layers.  She gets under the covers and stays bundled, eating all her healthy foods and drinking those protein shakes with extra vitamins and minerals.  So after four sessions she hasn't lost any weight.  Thus far, her bloodwork seems to be good.  We were both concerned when her WBC dropped a little during the chills, indicating low resistance and not so low as to be a worry.  Her other blood values are in range which makes her HAPPY!!!

So I figured out...Sis is .66666667 % done!!!!  Yep, two more to go.  After her fifth, scheduled for the 13th of December, she has a follow-up with her original surgeon/oncologist in AL.  That will be mid-December.  Keep your fingers crossed that she and I both a happy birthdays at the end of the month.

Sincerely,
JP (aka A Quiet Corner)

P S.  That news was enough to make my Thanksgiving feel blessed, let alone that I slept over Mia's!
