I am going to be quarantined to my house for a few days. When my white blood cells started out this cycle at just 3.8, I knew that I would probably go too far down again this time which was confirmed today. My white blood cells were only 1.4 today, and I was moderately neutropenic. With all of the flu nastiness going around, they stressed avoiding crowds and children even more than normal, and indicated that it would be in my best interest to stay at home.
I just want to be able to complete my last chemo next Tuesday, and if quarantining myself will make that happen successfully, then I can do it....right? I know it sounds like it wouldn't be that hard to stay in, but when you already have had and will have multiple days that you physically can't drive or leave the house, it is a little easier said than done...... especially when I am actually feeling pretty good like today. It is strange to me that the chemo cycles were I've gone the lowest white blood cell wise are the ones that I've actually felt the best. Just one more oddity in this whole cancer weirdness!
