Not much to update on but I am back up on my feet again and feeling pretty good! I have managed all week to do some form of exercise whether it be a home yoga practice, my home ball and strength training routine or heading to the gym to do some cardio. It is nothing compared to what I used to be able to do but it is something and it gets my body moving and my blood pumping again! I also managed to clean my house again on my own, this time even getting on my hands and knees to wash the floors! This is always very exciting because this is when I know my energy levels are back up, but..... I still need to take breaks and a nap in the afternoon.
All of this is in preparation for this week coming up, #5! This week, I have to get my blood work drawn for my genetic testing which needs to be done Mon/Tues/Wed in order to have it shipped to London in time to process it as it is not able to sit over a certain period of time. I also need to have it drawn as close to my chemo date as possible as I need to make sure my white blood cell counts are up because they stated it is from the white blood cells that they draw your DNA. Not saying they will not get any information if my count is done but there might not be enough information to extract for the testing so.... my count needs to be up. I also have to have blood work drawn for Dr. Alam prior to my appointment with her on Wednesday, Thursday is #5, and Friday my last Neulasta shot to keep my white blood cells up, YIPPEE!
It is such a great feeling to know that parts of this journey will soon be coming to a close!
