1. My oncologist and I get to "ooooh" and "ahhhh" over how the cancerous area is shrinking. That is very exciting.
2. As each week passes, I am closer to being done with chemo. My last Taxol treatment is scheduled for 1/30.
3. I never know when I am actually going to get my chemo. It is always exciting to find out how low (or high) my ANC will be. This determines whether I get chemo that day, or if I need to receive a neupogen shot and try again the following day. Control freak here is learning to bask in the excitement of the lack of ability to plan.
We were scheduled for my oncologist visit, labs and chemo treatment today. Today was exactly a week after my last treatment, so my hope was that my white blood count and ANC were high enough for chemo. We have more travel plans tomorrow so we can celebrate Christmas with Drew's side of the family.
