Day 65 – 68

Today October 25th, is the first day in last four days that I was able to actually feel little better and be able to eat without throwing up.

Monday when I went to the hospital, I was told that my blood counts are extremely low. My ANC is only 100 which put me at very high risk of infection.  Doctor and the nurse said to my Dad to be very careful and keep me protected.  They even gave a new medication to take one day so that my blood counts do not go down any further. My dad said to me “ Arjun, you cannot go to school this week. Doctor said you have to stay away from the crowd to be safe.” I was really upset about it because I am going to miss my presentation and the class lessons. It gets so boring at home. No friends to talk to or play with. But when I came home after the chemo treatment that day, I did not feel very good. My stomach was hurting, lot of nausea and gas which made me so uncomfortable that in one way I was happy that I did not go to school. I think the doctor already knew how I am going to feel that is why he told me to stay home.

I feel very tired and cold most of the time and my mom said that it is because my hemoglobin is low. I hope my bone marrow makes the good blood cells fast so that I can start feeling better soon.

My friend did the face time with me to tell me what is going on in the class and I am trying to do my best to keep up with the class work as much as I understand. I hope my teachers come soon for home instructions so that I can be up to date.

    Dear Arjun,

    It was so nice to talk to you over Facetime yesterday and see you in good spirits! I am so amazed at how you have been trying to keep up with school work online. I know its not easy dealing with all this and trying to keep up with school remotely but you are an amazing, determined, strong, smart young man and I know that with your awesome attitude you will beat this and come out stronger still. Feel free to call Sathvik for any school help or if you just want to “Facetime” hang out!

    Priya aunty
