Bad, but not horrible news

Some bad news on the chemo front – my white blood cell count was too low to get my treatment. I guess that Neulasta shot is doing something besides making me sore and tired after all. What does this mean? Well, first, it means I’m really depressed. Second, it means the treatment gets put off for a week. Unfortunately, there’s nothing I can do to make my body produce more white cells. Luckily, there’s also not much I can do to prevent it from making them either. So now it’s just a waiting game until next Thursday, then we’ll do another blood test and see where I stand. Ugh.

In other news, my new computer is almost here. My other old ones are dead or decrepit and I’ve been trying to get them up and running since September. I finally gave up on them last week and ordered a new PC from NewEgg (my new favorite computer source). UPS says it’s in Windsor Locks as of early this morning, but it also says the scheduled delivery is Monday. I don’t know if that means they’re just going to leave it in Windsor Locks until then or what.
