The osteosarcoma road continues to hold unexpected turns. K's white blood cell count was too low for her to have chemotherapy today. That's a common side effect of chemotherapy drugs because the drugs kill bone marrow cells as well as cancer cells. Now, we have to wait for her bone marrow to make more white blood cells before she can have any more chemotherapy. We're hoping that her immune system will bounce back sufficiently that she can have chemo by the end of next week.
This morning, our nominee for "Cracker Critter", R, joined me for a sizzling bike ride.
In contrast to my morning outing with R, K and I went for a very peaceful walk this evening. She loves her "working stiff job" of being my photo model and naturally posed on a rock while we lingered near a lookout point. Thanks to all of you who voted for K in the Working Stiffs competition of Mango Minster. We were so surprised that she did so well!
