Hey, Team Morgan!!
This past week has been a great one for me. 😊
Yesterday I went to clinic, received my 3rd week of chemo for month 2. Even though my platelets still continue to be low, my oncologist gave me the okay to restart my oral chemo after a month of holding it. Yay! I also found out that my hemoglobin was 8.5 (they typically infuse at or below 8) ,but since I’m slowly starting to get headaches I decided to go ahead and get transfused a week early, so I won’t be miserable over the weekend. I was supposed to get transfused today, but it was postponed until tomorrow.
That’s it for this week. I hope y’all have a great rest of your week. I look forward to talking to y’all next week!
Good Wednesday evening, everyone! It’s Morgan! And this is my first official post on my blog !! 🎉I just wanted to give y’all a short update from the past week. I’ll be quite honest with you guys, it’s been ROUGH! Since last Thursday I had a constant headache (no medicine would work) and was in bed the majority of the time due to it & being extremely fatigued. As you guys know… I was FINALLY able to restart IV chemo last week. I was pretty happy about it being that I was more than a month behind schedule.
On top of being exhausted from chemo last week, I found out yesterday that my Hemoglobin was 6.2😳 which was the main cause of my headaches. That said, today while in clinic, i received my 2nd dose of IV chemo for my 2nd cycle along with a blood transfusion. Hopefully, tomorrow I’ll be back to myself. Let’s pray for that! 😊Well, I think that’s it for today. I hope everyone has a great rest of your week and an even better weekend.
Hi, guys! Good Thursday morning to each of you. I just wanted to take a few minutes to send out an update on Morgan before getting this day underway. To begin, she finally started her 2nd month of IV chemotherapy yesterday for this round. Although she is 6 weeks behind schedule and should have started month 3 last Wednesday, we are happy that she was able to get the ball rolling again. Her blood counts have still not recovered completely from the first month of treatment, but her immune system was high enough to reintroduce IV chemotherapy, thankfully.
That said, she has had a pretty good couple of weeks. Although some days were better than others, she has been able to spend sometime away from home for a few hours at a time. She went to the Texas Rangers Opening Day game, took prom pictures of her brother, Montana at Adriatica followed by dinner, enjoyed the fair in Frisco with her sister, Mariah and finally had lunch with her friend, Allie. All of these things have been helpful in keeping her spirits high. Let’s pray it continues during this phase of treatment.
Well, I think that will do it for today. I hope that you guys have a wonderful Thursday! Take care!
