So we celebrated Diwali with lot of nice decorations and fun! I got my knee hockey and we played that till late in the night. I was reminded every few minutes by my mom to watch for my port so that the ball does not hit me. These days I get the weird pains randomly in my shin or the big toes. It makes it so hard to kneel down to play hockey sometimes.
After Diwali was over on Wednesday, Nov 7th, I was all excited to go for my blood work on Thursday because I knew my ANC would be up from Monday. But it did not happen. It actually went down more than Monday. My dad looked worried and called my mom. I saw them talking to the doctor on the phone. When I came home then my mom looked very sad. I told mom, “Don’t worry mom, God has a plan for me.” My mom smiled and asked me “ Okay so what is the plan?” I told her “That I do not know yet but I know there is definitely a plan” I started laughing then which made everyone laugh.
I have been feeling great actually for 2-3 days because I have not received the chemotherapy for almost 2 weeks. I have been hungry. I have a lot of energy. I even spent some time with my little cousins on Saturday. I was running around with the 1 yr old cousin. Man! That felt so good. My mom and I have made great progress in the puzzle but it is sooo hard with such tiny pieces. I know I will finish it soon. My brother is helping me too! I have to go back on Monday for the blood test and if my count is not high then they will do bone marrow aspiration. I hope they go up so that I do not have to stay hungry for a long long time. Also it hurts in my back afterwards. My mom said I will be just fine on Monday and things will get better soon!
