No expectations

Not too sure what to expect this week.  Tonight, Shelbie has a new development.  She is getting all sorts of canker sores in her mouth and throat.  I suspect that her white count has dropped and she is probably neutropenic.  Neutropenia is when the neutrophils drop to low levels.  The neutrophils are the young white cells that are called up to fight infections.  For some reason, this drop in neutrophils will cause mouth sores.  I don't think they would start chemo if she is neutropenic but I'm not sure.  At any rate, with all the insurance conumdrums who knows what will take place this week.  Something will have to be done but what?

I'm actually ok about it. Go figure. I am in a better place the last couple of days than I have been the last couple of weeks.  There's a reason for everything, that is one thing I have learned from all these trials.  We just have to be patient and wait for things to unfold.  Should be interesting.
