Hi every one I'm sorry we haven't been posting lately , we have had company from Peru, and have been very busy. Mags niece her baby boy ( he's 3) her husband, and her father in law, spent a week with us, her niece stayed a extra week, so theirs three of us here now.
Of coarse if you know Mag she was involved in going places and doing things, now she's very tired.
We went to the Dr. Monday to have her pump put on , and as is the practice they did a blood test , all was well except her white cell count was down, that's the thing that fights the bad guys, the Dr. said it is pretty standard for this to happen ,because the chemo doesn't know the good guys from the bad guys. To rectify this situation they stopped her therapy for two days, Mon. Tue., and she is receiving a shot each day.
The shot stimulates the bone marrow to produce more white cells , and as a side effect it causes bone pain and general malaise. So for the past few days she hasn't had much zip.
Her appetite hasn't been very good as of late, she says she is to full from drinking so much water! Here is a pict of her niece and her son Marice and Ignacio, he is very active and loves trains. ............Love Mag & Bob
