Chemo Delayed

Julie had her next chemo treatment scheduled for today, December 5th. Unfortunately, her blood tests showed that her white blood cell count was too low for her body to be able to handle another treatment right now. They are delaying the treatment for a week. That should give her body time to rebuild her blood count...we certainly hope so. We don't like the delay because it will delay the determination if her treatments are being effective, but it's very dangerous to apply chemo with a low count, so there is no choice. We'll have to wait another two or three weeks to get some definitive results. A long wait...

    I hope her count goes up by next week! The waiting is so hard. I started aa new chemo last week and this one will most likely bring my count down too. But together we will beat this!!!! Love you guys!

    Continue to hang tough. Know it is a difficult fight but you are in our thoughts and prayers. Our daughter had breast cancer and we understand, from a different perspective, many of these issues. By the way, she is well and six years out, continue the fight. All the best. Our Love, Cleo & Judy
