The Neon is gone. I left it at the body shop and drove home in the freshly fixed up Miata. It still smells a little like paint on the interior. They did a nice enough job and they also took out the two small dings on the right rear quarter panel that I have put there over the years. As a side effect of the paint blending process, a couple of scratches disappeared as well. Spent a hour or so once I got it home putting all the junk back in the trunk (and glove box and center console…) While the Neon wasn’t a bad ride for a while, it sure is nice to get the car back.
The Nuepogen is gone. Donna had gotten one shot of it on Monday at the doctor’s office, the company nurse give her the next two on Tuesday and Wednesday. On Thursday she went back for a blood test and the results showed that after Monday’s low White Blood Cell count of 2.5, the WBC was back in range at 4.5, but her platelets only rose from 1.0 to 1.8 and still remained a couple ticks below range. So she got neupogen dose #4. We had another oncology appointment this morning, with another blood test. The WBC was now over the top (10 is the upper limit of the range) at 11.4 and her platelets were up in the normal range too. She figured she was home free, nope, the doctor wanted her to get one more. The good news about that was, he then didn’t need to see her again until next Friday when she is scheduled for chemo treatment #2.
The hair is gone. Started to come out last night and there was lots more hair in the sink this morning. Tonight after supper we went out onto the back deck and I used my beard trimmer to cut Donna’s hair down to an 1/8 inch high. We then came back inside where I shaved her head. It may have been falling out, but it was still very thick. I used 4 Gillette Sensor3 razor blades. Now all she has is a five o’clock shadow. I didn’t want to try and make it baby bottom smooth because her scalp had taken enough of a beating getting to where I got it.
