15 June, cycle 3B

Wow. No wonder I feel like crap. My numbers have plummeted again and I’ll need another transfusion. My white blood cells are now – wait for it – <0.1, which basically means that I have no white blood cells. Immunocompromised much? Such much! I am one delicate flower right now.

Welp, I had hoped that the pain in my mouth was beginning to recede somewhat but then last night happened. Horrible stabbing pain all through the night that the Tylenol I had taken before bed did little to alleviate. I’m going to be a wreck today and I’m going to try my hardest not to talk. Talking just makes the pain worse, so much worse. It’s back to gruel and other soft foods. I’ll see if I can get some Ensure sent up although I have to have a doctor’s permission before I can get any. Ugh… I should really go take my shower now but I’m not feeling particularly motivated.

So… Here I am attempting to update my blog using thumbs only. My iPad seems to be completely on the fritz. I’ve been fighting to establish an internet connection with the damn thing but it won’t hold. My phone seems unaffected or I would have suspected the hospital WiFi was acting up again. I have NO idea what the trouble is but this seriously sucks. I won’t be able to access Netflix or Apple+ for films or series. Okay, I suppose I could try to connect using my phone but watching anything on such a dinky screen is going to be annoying as hell. My iPad is now essentially a ludicrously overpriced small placemat. That’s about all it’s good for at the moment. Fabulous. This day just keeps getting better and better.🙄

I’m going to take a break from blog updates for a few days. I’m in so much pain that I really don’t want to have to deal with it. If something of major importance happens I’ll post a short update but as it stands now I’ll probably wait until my white blood cell count/pain level improves. This is Blogging About the Beast, going dark…
