No one promised me this would be easy right?! Well, the past couple weeks haven’t been. I have been neutropenic (aka can’t fight any infection) for a week or so now. According to my dad I am running on a ¼ of a tank. Literally, that is what it feels like. I still am doing my school work, making dinner and exercising, but everything just makes me feel tired. Some of it is the fact that my labs are UGLY, but the other part is the #1 side effect of all these medications is fatigue. In addition to being tired, I have had a busy treatment schedule. I have been going Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for the past couple of weeks. As of tomorrow I will be done consolidation. I cannot believe it- - another phase down! J I will have to wait for my labs to recover and then I can start interm maintenance. While I am excited to move onto the next phase, I still continue to take it one step @ a time.

Till next time…KMS
