One Treatment Cycle Down – So far so good
My next set of appointments are as follows:
- Tomorrow I need to return for an injection of Neulasta, This will help reduce the risk of infection by boosting my white blood cell count to strengthen my immune system. For some reason my neutrophil has been low. It was at 1.2. For it to be normal it must fall between 2.5 and 7.0.
- May 7th I have a follow up with Dr. Goy
- May 26th through May 28th I am scheduled for my 2nd treatment cycle
I can’t say it enough how important it is for me to stay positive and to be driven by Faith, Hope, Love and Prayer. I truly believe that my good attitude and approach to my treatments is something that has been contagious with my chemotherapy comrades who share the same infusion room with me. Socializing, sharing our stories and providing encouragement to each other is extremely powerful to the healing process for all of us.
All and all this was a great way to start my treatment of MCL. I am looking for the momentum of this positive week to carry through to a successful outcome.
Here is a YouTube link to a great song that has been helping me greatly. I listen to it, play it on my guitar and I have even sung it in church. Give it a listen, I hope you get the same inspiration that I get from it. It is called “One thing Remains”. Enjoy!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GoYgi0sdOqc
