Today I had my monthly appointment with my oncologist.

My bloods came back with good results my white blood cell count was slightly higher than last cycle but my platelets were slightly down from 114 to 111.

All that broccoli, kiwi fruit and papaya I ate might have helped.

This means I will start my 16th cycle of double chemotherapy on Monday. Jeez I can’t wait for the nausea and tiredness.

It looks like my bone marrow is starting to struggle so looks like I am going to have to go from 5 /23 day cycles to 5/30 day cycles to give it an extra week.

If anyone has any questions about my journey don’t hesitate to ask
