Another infection

Started work on Wednesday which was good.  After work I had to go the the hospital to have a GCSF injection as I am once again neutropenic.

Whilst in the hospital I started spiking a temperature above 39 so I have been admitted again.  It turns out I have parainfluenza so I have been put on another course of antibiotics and also a nebuliser three times a day.

Back again

Had to be readmitted as an emergency again on Friday morning.  I was spiking temperatures at home of 38.7 so after speaking to NHS direct they advised me to get to A&E sharpish.  After they took bloods I was also neutropenic again and had a CRP of +70.

I have been put on another course of antibiotics to hopefully get rid of the infection.  Chemo has been delayed again but as my blood counts are a little higher today they may start the chemo tomorrow.

Chemo delayed

Went to hospital yesterday for my next batch of chemo but they have decided to delay it until next Tuesday as my blood counts were too low.  They installed a fresh PICC line and performed a bone marrow biopsy though.  I have to return later today also for 2 units of blood to help get my blood counts back up for next week.

In the evening my legs gave way again and I fell on my cheek.  Lovely bruise developing.
