Wow and woot!

I'm at the cancer center. I'm hooked up and receiving my final dose of chemo (aka God given liquid gold cure juice)! I'm so grateful. So blessed. So happy. Tears keep streaming. God is great.

I'm very anemic. 8.3. But doc is letting me decline a blood transfusion since this is my final dose and I have a good amount of time before surgery and radiation in case my numbers remain low and we need to get transfused or have any other interventions. I am getting a shot to aid in raising my rbc count but its effect is limited usually. I have faith that it will all work out.

Did I mention that I'm immensely grateful and blessed?

Love,
Julie

  2. Congrats, last chemo!! And you still call it liquid gold... good for you, that optimism goes a long way. I'm curious why you don't want the blood transfusion - I didn't get one either, but my energy was sure low and my heart would beat like crazy when my red blood counts were low. I've heard the transfusion makes you feel like a new person.Anyways, way to go, and happy holidays!!
