Just quickly: I went to St Richard’s this morning and had a full blood test (as well as getting the stitches attaching my Hickman line to my chest removed, as was due). The results? Well, apart from a white cell count of 2.6, a platelets count of 56 and a haemoglobin count of 9.9, I have 1.2 (x10^9) neutrophils! So I’m now officially ready for the next chemo. However, there’s no room inn St George’s… So I shan’t be going in today. Or tomorrow. But I could be going in any time after that.
Having over 1 (x10^9) neutrophil(s?) means I am not neutropaenic! Hurrah! So I might just enjoy the delights of the Emsworth Garden Show, at which rumour has it there might be ice-cream. Harriet’s working there and trying to burn herself in the blazing sunshine. She’s currently very entertainingly patterned, thanks to her Birkenstocks and t-shirt.
