Over the last three days things have steadily improved. Today I feel pretty normal, though I'm now becoming neutropenic (when the blood cells die off). Neutropenia is no big deal except that you are more vulnerable to infection and have to bundle yourself off to hospital if your temperature goes above 38. The more I think about it, the more I realise this cycle was like the previous one. I just need to be ready for the 4-5 days of hell that set in around 5 days after chemo.
Sauls's partner Jo's family have 100 acres of coastal land at Mahurangi and we spent Yesterday there with K and Joss. The animals are alpacas.
