Well, at least now I know why I've been feeling so bad....my hemoglobin was 8.1 today!! Normal is usually around 12. I'm scheduled to have more lab work on the 25th to see if it has gone up. If not, they will give me an injection of something....I think it's called Procrit. All of the other symptoms I'm having are completely normal for the particular type of chemotherapy I've been getting. My only instructions are to take it easy, get up slower, keep my feet up to help combat the swelling, eat lots of protein and keep hydrated.
I'm sorry I sounded so whiny last night. I either feel really bad or really good...there isn't a whole lot of "in-between" lately. Emotionally, I feel on the edge and on the verge of crying a lot of the time. I guess it's all par for the course, but frustrating none the less.
Thank you all for your kind words and prayers!
