Wednesday stuff

imageWell, so far its been a nice week off pomalyst. I’ve felt pretty good. I e messaged my doctor and he said not to worry, I was only mildly neutophrenic. So, since I feel good, I haven’t worried. I’ll start Pom on Friday.

We’ve been quite busy at the library since out main branch is closed for re carpeting. Lots of new people picking up holds etc. tomorrow I have a FOL meeting and we’ll be voting on officers and summer reading budget. That is if we have a quorum. We should as most members know it’s an important meeting.

We’ve had quite cool weather but still very nice. Low 70’s, and a little breezy.

My husband put together the Poang chair and the little side table from Ikea and both are quite nice. So I have decide if I’ll get another Poang chair so there’s two. I’ll wait and see. I haven’t put the new slip covers on and maybe later today.

So today is my doctors appointment and my zometa infusion. This is my first one in almost a year. Maybe it’s 10 months. So, I’m taking Gatorade and Tylenol. I usually spike a little fever the first night for a few hours. Also, you generally feel a little dragged out. I don’t have much to go over with him except, my low ANC, and hopefully my FLC and Spep test results are there. But usually it’s 3 days. I’m still not sure about getting the paper work for the second opinion going. I’m in resistance for some reason.

Then I thought we might stop at Costco, but usually I’m too wiped out after zometa so I’ll have to plan that another day unless I feel good.

Here’s the really exciting news. Today my Mac Air is showing up. Finally after saying I was going to get one for the last 3 years ,I did it. Plus, my daughter , in graduate school, all of a sudden thought she’d like to use one too.  So…… I’m very excited. Not sure what I’ll do with it yet that’s different from my iPad but it will have a keyboard and a bigger screen. So exciting!!!!

I still haven’t figured out how to insert the pictures here, where I want them. Maybe with my new MacAir I can figure it out.

One thought on “Wednesday stuff

  1. OK, I don’t know if it will work for you, but my son is always a little low in neutrophils. He was on depakote, which is known for lowering neurophil levels, so he got off that and the levels came up. Then they went down again. The docs were perplexed and he was tested for every blood disease on earth.

    I started researching on my own and found a medical journal that talked about low Folic Acid levels lowering neutrophil counts. It also has something to do with the way the body synthesizes the folic acid. So, I started giving my son lots of folic acid and his neutrophil counts went up and stayed up. When we took him off the folic acid, they dropped again.

    Docs are ok with how much he takes. I forget off the top of my head as he does not live with me anymore. Oh, his lowest levels were less than 500 and he tops out at about 1200.

    You might want to talk about it with them.
