I'm glad my husband Tom took me this morning because I felt sleepy and weak after it. He usually does take me or my daughter Emily has too. I still have the same critical low white blood count. It hasn't gone up at all. My low platelets increased a little. Even with low counts, I can still have the maintenance therapy. I'm grateful my nurse only tried one vein in my arm. She blew the vein so couldn't use it for my blood samples and for infusion. She tried a vein in hand and it worked. I'm glad I wasn't stuck several times as in the past. I was approved for a port in November because of the difficulty with my veins. I know port has disadvantages, too, so I am not getting it. Next IV infusion is in March with a CT scan in February. Hoping I get an experienced technician for CT scan In the past they jabbed me a lot, then sometimes have to find someone else to get a IV started.
