I've been have a rough few days, with high levels of pain, and quite low levels of energy, so putting my focus on creating something that is simply pleasing to my eye has been a nice diversion - especially after my last post!
One of the side effects of receiving chemo is the lowering of white blood cells. If they get too low, the patient can't receive the chemo, so to raise the white blood cell count I am given an injection of something called neupogen. This injection has a lovely side effect of something described as 'possible bone pain'. To give you an idea of what "possible bone pain' feels like to me - I describe it as a full body ice cream head ache running through out my skeletal frame, which has now lasted for two days.
Later today, after I go to sleep and wake up, I'll have my 6th round of chemo. Then I will only have two more to go!! The count down is really on :)
