I was under the impression they may not do a 3rd cycle but only a clinical trial (Maybe another version of induction) but I’m praying it doesn’t come to that. The nurse today told her they are pleased with her platelet count which is rising steadily, I’m hoping that’s a good sign? Her neutrophils don’t seem to be rising as fast although we have had a tiny increase to 0.03 today.
My wife was diagnosed after feeling unwell for a couple of weeks, the doctors originally said it was a virus and have her antibiotics but She got progressively worse to the point she couldn’t walk up the stairs without being breathless. She insisted on a blood test and later that evening at 11:15 they called her to go straight into hospital.
Her Haemoglobin levels were that low the doctor said her has never seen someone still alive in 28 years with levels so low…how she was still conscious was nothing short of a miracle.
A transfusion then followed and a BMB which confirmed our worst fears.
Luckily at Heartlands they get free TV which is a godsend for her and she has a tablet and books etc to keep her occupied but i fear it is affecting her mentally now having been in for 9 weeks, she certainly needs a break now for the sake of her own sanity.
We have 2 kids a 9 year old girl and a 5 year old lad.
Wasn’t aware we could claim for a blue badge although we have spoken to McMillan who have told us our entitlements which are next to nothing due to our earnings although they were very helpful.
