I was having a really good day until the 4:00 finger poke which indicated the blood count for the coumadin was only up to 1.8. It needs to be over 2.0 before I can stop getting the belly shots. After my visit to the cancer and hematology center, I had to go to the hospital for the shot of lovenox. As if that wasn't enough, they had to do a complete blood draw there too. I am getting discouraged with all of the pokes and not getting the results as quickly as I would like. In addition, school is busy, busy, busy. I find myself trying to catch up from missing a month, planning, grading, and trying to keep my room at least presentable all while having to fly out in a hurry at the end of the day.
On a happier note, I came home to a loving family, the smell of a delicious dinner from a friend baking, and a stack of inspirational cards that came in the mail.
