White Cells Have Arrived & Me

Posted on: December 28, 2016

It was not the biggest shipment, but  I now have 1,100 neutrophils, the most important form of white cells.

I don’t mean to brag or anything, but last week I had 750. It’s enough that I can start back on ibrance, the drug that is my primary fighter against cancer.

I still have “mild neutropenia.” And will have weekly blood tests to monitor the impact of ibrance on my counts. Still using Purel like it’s going out of style.

With my weekly bloodwork, consider going to the clinic my hobby, although I have other interests like reading, binging tv and playing Words with Friends and Scrabble. Oh, I also like to write stuff.

In the meantime, I have moved on beyond Blizzards – they are treats but not my primary staple of nutrition or lack of.

Cheers for white cells.  Happy New Year to all if I don’t write again before the new year begins.

Keep those neutrophils coming! I want to see that total piling up like snowflakes in Wisconsin (or Minnesota, as I think I wrote before). Although for the sake of the neutrophils count, I think whichever state gets the highest total is just fine. Maybe North Dakota? Maine? Definitely not Alabama. . . . Well, now I’m getting confused, so let’s just leave it at this: YOU keep piling up the neutrophils!

So Scrabble is different from/than WWF? Who knew? Keep the good cells coming.

Dear Susan,
Every time I read you are better I am filled with joy and more hope than you can imagine. So very, very many people feel the same way. You are so loved!!! I can’t imagine what you are going through but pray you feel better and get better every day. Have a happy, healthy new year!!! Xo
Your old gradeschool friend,
Margie

Arms wide open for new neutrophils! Not easy to say out loud. What’s important is building them up in your body.

Hooray for neutrophils! Keep up the good work & your splendid attitude. Happy New Year.
