My wife’s leukemia souvenirs. White blood cell, red blood cell, platelet, and lets not forget the squatter who moved in when they others were abscent, good ole c-diff. I should find staff bacteria too.

Hoje me liberaram pra uma "fugidinha" até a janela do corredor. Dali eu vejo de frente o túnel da Conceição. Como é engraçado reparar no teto dos carros. Acho que a maioria das pessoas não tem noção do desgaste que o tempo causa ali.

Passei dois dias na emergência, lá nao tinha janelas, nem televisão, parecia sempre noite. O ar condicionado tava sempre a mil. Passei frio. As pessoas estavam na sua "pior versao", cansadas - exaustas, com dor, o ar era carregado, pesado. 
Aqui, no quarto, eu tenho televisão, o notebook e o mais importante, janelas. Antes da imunidade cair drasticamente podia até andar no corredor. 
Hoje a orientação é evitar as "fugidinhas", mas ainda tenho a janela, os carros passando, dia é dia e noite é noite. Tem um pinheiro, cheio de pinhas e muitas outras árvores bem cheias que balançam pra me alegrar.
Sempre fui uma pessoa de janelas, gosto delas, observar a rua, no ônibus ou carro, abrir o vidro e deixar o vento no rosto, é  bem piegas - até bobinho, mas a janela tem me dado bons momentos aqui tbm.

We’re almost to bone marrow transplant
.
It is a little over a month away. This sweet guy will turn 6 years old and then the following week will give his bone marrow to his little sister so she can finally get better and come home
.
I know I do put on a brave face and I do focus on the good but the next month is going to be really hard on all of us.
.
It’ll get harder before it gets better
.
Sometimes stuff just sucks. Sometimes we have to take a situation we’ve been handed and make something better out of it
.
How can we still keep going when life throws us a shit pile?
.
▶️ the time will pass anyway. Do something with it. Start a new project, pick up a new hobby
.
▶️ connect with people you haven’t been as close with. This will keep you grounded in things you do have control over
.
▶️ talk about it. Keeping stuff bottled in all the time doesn’t do anyone any good
.
▶️ start a gratitude journal. Even on the worst days there are things to be grateful and excited about
.

⚠⚠⚠Una mujer de 54 años presentó un cuadro clínico de 2 días de evolución de caracterizado por un #rash doloroso en su cara (Panel A), orejas (Panel B), mamas y extremidades. Los estudios de laboratorio revelaron #neutropenia y linfopenia; la detección de anticuerpos citoplásmicos antineutrófilos (ANCA) mediante pruebas de inmunofluorescencia mostró el patrón perinuclear (p-ANCA) y el patrón citoplasmático (c-ANCA), y un ensayo inmunoabsorbente ligado a enzimas reveló un título de anticuerpos de proteinasa-3 de 1: 320. El examen toxicológico de la orina fue positivo para cocaína y opiáceos. El nivel de levamisol en la orina 2 días después del ingreso fue positivo a 920 ng por mililitro. Una muestra de biopsia de piel con erupción mostró púrpura, con formación de fibrina intravascular focal que fue consistente con vasculopatía. El tratamiento con metilprednisolona y prednisona no produjo mejoría, y el paciente se sometió a un desbridamiento extenso del tejido necrótico. Los hallazgos clínicos fueron consistentes con los efectos tóxicos del levamisol, incluida la supresión de la médula ósea y la vasculopatía ANCA positiva. .

It’s #MetsMonday. Class is in session. 
It’s cold and flu season and chemotherapy puts us more at risk for infection. Chemo drugs are used to treat cancer by killing the fastest growing cells- both good and cancer cells. 
A low white blood cell count is a side effort of chemo. That means the body has fewer infection fighting white blood cells.  So this contributed to me going to the oncology walk-in clinic yesterday. I ran a low grade fever and then developed a productive cough.  Given my lung history, I had to be proactive. My oncology group has an “after hours” clinic specifically for cancer patients. Such a blessing to have access to this service because cancer patients are not the norm. The last place they want you to go to is an urgent care or an ER, a cesspool of germs. Although I am very tired, I am feeling better and have lost my voice. Some would think that is a good thing! 
So I’m laying low today and letting the antibiotics work. #chemo #lowWBC #neutropenia #atriskforinfection #germparanoia #feelingbetter #laryngitis #mymbclife💙💚💗

The Lie I Told Myself: My daughter got as sick as she did because I didn’t take her to the hospital soon enough, because I was afraid of how expensive it would be
.
The truth? Her immune disruption had nothing to do with what we did or didn’t do and just happened, without warning. Nobody realized how bad it was until her labs didn’t improve
.
What lies hold you back? Make you feel like you are less than you are?
.
Are you afraid of sharing your story on social media because of what people will say?
.
What could they say? Where did you get the idea from that anyone would say anything?
.
.
Acknowledge the lie, challenge it, figure out where the truth is.

What lie have you told yourself recently? How did you overcome it? 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻

My platelets dropped to 15 (normal range is 150-450), so I’m here at the clinic getting a transfusion. My ANC also dropped to 200 (normal range is 1600-6000), so I’m back to being severely neutropenic. I also just got IV Benadryl so I’m high and about to pass out. Thanks, chemo!

Is this even real life? I don’t know what I want to do first. Curl up on the floor and sleep, clean, run around our new neighborhood, or just cry from emotion?! We are SO thankful and grateful for this new adventure. This year has been very full of obstacles and decisions. I know God has lead us to Louisiana and to this new start by his will. I know we are HERE for reason. Thank you all for following our story thus far and I hope you will continue to as we document our days in Monroe!

We got some big scary news yesterday
.
I know a lot of you are new and don’t know our full story. It’s a long one. Long story short my 4 year old Theresa got very sick in January. It was her first time ever being sick. We thought it was a simple ear infection but come to find out her appendix had burst and the infection had spread and we barely caught it
.
We barely caught it in time
.
It’s so scary to say that out loud
.
We found out she had no immune system essentially. We still don’t know why
.
But after months and months of tests. Medication trial and error. Treating symptom after symptom
.
We are starting the bone marrow transplant process this week with her amazing big brother Kruzie as the donor
.
Although we don’t know what the weeks ahead will look like we are determined to get her better so we can get back HOME in 2019 and make that year the best year we have had, together, as a family ❤️
.
I appreciate all your constant love for her, your love for Kruzie, your love for Nick and I....you supporting my business because it has given me so much purpose throughout this scary scary year. I am forever grateful 🙏🏻
.
Are you on the bone marrow registry? It’s a simple cheek swab to be added. Theresa didn’t have any registry matches. There are so many others like her that need this gift. If you are medically able, please go to @bethematch

Round 21ish??? My labs were TERRIBLE (the lowest ever) so I'm only having Avastin. 
Pretty funny because I had all those choices.  It took me all week to decide to go for Folfox + Avastin. 
Today I got a reminder that it's not always my choice.  So just Avastin and neulasta for the day.  Praying we will be back at it with good counts soon!

My neulasta didn't take well last week  after chemo so I got my results from the doctor and White blood cells @ .9 and my neutropenia level is @ .7 so yeah I'm house bound until my next doctors appt😕😕😕. I cannot go through another neutropenic fever again last time I was in the hospital for 4 days it was horrible!

Just been for a checkup at the christie and my neutrophils are at zero which means I have no immune system. Got a mouth full of ulcers and fatigued to fuck. Nothing a nap won't sort out. @mummy.d_x2 by my side as usual looking after me.

NEUTROPENIA 
A quimioterapia, em geral possui efeito sobre o sistema hematopoietico, determinando normalmente uma neutropenia grave, e assim maior vunerabilidade para o desenvolvimento de infecções oportunistas e sepse. Este risco é  inversamente proporcional ao número de neutrófilos circulantes.
Muitos estudos relatam que  a presença de microorganismos patógenos em diversos alimentos podem causar infecções oportunistas nos períodos de imunossupressao.
A neutropenia acontece devido ao tratamento ou a doença propriamente dita e é  uma descida no número de neutrófilos no sangue( células que fazem parte do sistema imunológico).
No dia a dia, o paciente em quimioterapia pode evitar a contaminação seguindo alguns cuidados simples, como lavar as mãos com frequência, evitar áreas de construção ou reforma, onde pode haver muitos fungos no ar, usar máscaras ao sair de casa, ficar longe de multidões, evitar comer fora de casa.
As práticas adequadas de higienização e armazenamento de alimentos auxiliam no controle de doenças e infecções .
As orientações adequadas quanto aos cuidados com a dieta e com os alimentos são imprescindíveis nesta fase de imunossupressao. 
As adaptações podem parecer-lhe complicadas, mas tudo será uma questão de hábito, lembre-se que será  temporário e logo poderá voltar a sua rotina normal.

I've been in a horrible fibro flare this week. The last couple weeks have been nothing but go, go, go. Thankful that I could take the time I needed to rest this morning. Forced myself to do some #piyo because it's always what my body needs when it's in a flare. Now to shower and follow up with some #panawayessentialoil layered with #copaiba and then get myself moving so I can spend time with family. #younglivingessentialoils #youngliving #yleo #spoonielife #spoonieproblems #spoonie #neutrohero #neutropenia #zebrawarrior #fibrowarrior #fibromyalgia #neutrohero #disabilityninjas #itp #blessed #thinkpositive #thankful #flareup #beachbody #beachbodyondemand

Starting Month 11 in the hospital & Happy Thanksgiving 🦃
.
It’s crazy to think we are where we currently are but somehow right now I am at peace with it. We are where we need to be and heading where we need to go
.
This season I am determined to give as much as possible. As much love as I can. As much valuable content as your brain can possibly absorb
.
With the end of the year sooo close making every day count and being intentional is the focus we need to have 🙏🏻

How can I best serve you?? What content would you like to see? 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻

Dica para todos, mas em especial para meus pacientes oncológicos que estão neutropênicos ( queda de neutrofilos que podem diminuir defesas do organismo, impactando na imunidade, aumentando o risco de infecções ). Geralmente durante esse período, é recomendado a retirada de alimentos crus. Hoje preparei tomates e cebolas roxas, ao forno com azeite, orégano e cúrcuma ( que por sinal, tem efeito anti-inflamatório natural e é aliada na prevenção do câncer ). Assei por 30 minutos no forno e ficaram bem saborosos! Dessa forma, a salada não precisa sair do seu cardápio em fases de queda de imunidade e vc ainda pode da uma variada na sua refeição:) #crisanutri #dicadanutri #neutropenia #tratamentooncologico #nutricaoemoncologia #nutricionistarecife #oncologiarecife #criatividadenacozinha #terapiaalimentar #comfortfood #nutricaoeficiente #comidaquecura

Dessa forma, a salada não precisa sair do seu cardápio em fases de queda de imunidade e vc ainda pode da uma variada na sua refeição:) #crisanutri  #dicadanutri  #neutropenia  #tratamentooncologico  #nutricaoemoncologia  #nutricionistarecife  #oncologiarecife  #criatividadenacozinha  #terapiaalimentar  #comfortfood  #nutricaoeficiente  #comidaquecura 
This is why I am desperate to stay on my current protocol! I am feeling pretty good on it! These past few days I’ve organized my medical supplies for my PICC, beautified my little nook, hung new curtains, (ok, get ready...) mopped and polished our kitchen and entryway hardwood floors, strategically shampooed the carpet and planned menus for my in-laws visit and ordered the groceries! And I’m feeling ok. I had a migraine last night but imitrex whisked it away so not really that bad! I’m tired now but I sort of feel normal tired! I may crash tomorrow but you know what, I’m ok with that! I don’t want to stop something that’s obviously helping! I don’t really feel bad when my white blood cells drop but I know it’s dangerous. I’m going to just be thankful and pray for more good days! (PS: that cowboy painting is my Great Uncle Wayne painted by my talented grandmother artist!)

Images in Clinical Medicine: Toxic Effects of Levamisole in a #Cocaine User (June 16, 2011). ⠀
⠀
A 54-year-old woman presented with a 2-day history of a painful, enlarging #rash over her face (Panel A), ears (Panel B), breasts, and extremities. Laboratory studies revealed #neutropenia and lymphopenia; the detection of antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA) by immunofluorescence testing showed the perinuclear pattern (p-ANCA) and the cytoplasmic pattern (c-ANCA), and an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay revealed a proteinase-3 antibody titer of 1:320. Toxicologic screening of the urine was positive for cocaine and opiates. The urine levamisole level 2 days after admission was positive at 920 ng per milliliter. A #biopsy specimen of skin with the rash showed purpura, with focal intravascular fibrin formation that was consistent with vasculopathy. Treatment with methylprednisolone and prednisone did not result in improvement, and the patient underwent extensive débridement of the necrotic tissue. The clinical findings were consistent with the toxic effects of levamisole, including bone marrow suppression and ANCA-positive vasculopathy. Visit the link in our bio to learn more. ⠀

This week I had to drop the daptomycin. I’d been on it like 2 weeks and already my body is freaking out. And I got informed my white blood cells are dropping again and are too low. I’m preparing myself for having to stop everything again. I spent a month off meds to deal with this nonsense. I’m on a bajillion supplements for immune function, am on a strict diet, and as soon as I start a protocol my bone marrow self destructs. It’s so frustrating. I’m not sure what I’ll do if I just can’t tolerate antibiotics anymore. I’ve tried herbal treatments both alone and with my antibiotics pretty much this whole time. But herbs alone never give me much of anything, good or herx wise. I know I’m borrowing trouble by worrying but what if all I’ve done is just make it impossible for me to take antibiotics whilst still failing to eradicate stupid Lyme? .

⚠️Mindset Hack⚠️
.
What really changed things in business for me was first investing in myself and second practicing regular gratitude expression
.
It’s so easy for us to get caught up in the negative thoughts we have and the scary things happening in the world
.
Putting things into perspective by listing even three things we’re grateful for every day is the best mindset shifting activity to begin the day
.
I’ll start....
.
▶️ Grateful for friends who travel far to spend the day with me
.
▶️ Grateful for the ability to connect with so many network marketers and help them with Instagram
.
▶️ Grateful for Theresa’s anxiety being much better today 🙏🏻
.

Your turn! Tell me something you’re grateful for 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻

Day 3 out of the hospital: izzy got to see some family from chicago today, and got to play with other kids. feeling like this really breaks my heart because its so hard for me to actually play with her how id like to. i wish i could run around and be crazy with her but today it was hard to even sit up straight. i cant tell if this is part of whatever is going on in my body or just effects of medication or being weak from the hospital or all of the above, but this extreme exhaustion, weakness, shaking and discomfort usually fades away a few days after i get released from the hospital. i found myself holding back tears and anxious racing thoughts beating myself up for my body not being able to keep up with my mind and not being able to do what i want to do. 
my positive message to myself on days like these is to remember, i cant control how my body feels. its not my fault i feel this way, i didnt ask for this and getting out of bed is an achievement on these days. 🖤

Os presento a Catherine (desliza para ver el vídeo). Tiene 6 añitos y padece una enfermedad rara que afecta a una persona entre un millón. Ella tiene “glucógenosis tipo 1B”. No puede convertir el glucógeno en glucosa libre. Por lo que puede tener hipoglucemias muy graves e incluso morir. Catherine además presenta neutropenia (niveles anormalmente bajos de neutrófilos, un tipo de células blancas de la sangre). Lo que hace su situación más complicada. 
Su familia necesita fondos para que su enfermedad sea investigada. Si alguien desea ayudarla puede ponerse en contacto directo con ellos en el email: m.fuentegago@gmail.com o por Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/maria.gago.395 (Os lo dejo en mi bio) 
Muchas gracias por vuestra ayuda y colaboracion. ❌ Este es un caso real, muy cercano a mi ❌

I just realized you probably don’t know much about me yet!
.
Since I have a lot of new faces hiii I’m Kayla! I live in Chicago and I’m married to my tech nerd best friend & I have two kiddos 👧🏻👦🏻
.
We’ve been living in the hospital for almost a year while our daughter has been getting treatment for a mystery disorder that has left her with her body attacking her immune system
.
While sitting in her hospital room, realizing that our lives were vastly different than before and I couldn’t work 60 hours a week like before, I decided to turn my passion for social media and helping other people into a business where I work 1:1 with entrepreneurs, primarily network marketers and help them navigate Instagram in order to turn followers into customers without sending icky “hey girl” messages
.
When I’m not in the hospital with Theresa or working....I love group fitness classes, playing with makeup, avocado toast and cop shows

How to stay productive during the holidays
.
I hear you girlfriend! Your in-laws are coming into town and you have 4 meals to cook in 2 days and screaming kids. How can you keep productive in your business with all that?!
.
Wellllllllll let’s talk about it!
.
▶️ Schedule work time: this means have someone else take the kids, and you sit down to do focused work. No scrolling IG!
.
▶️ write out a weekly goal: want to talk to 50 people by the end of the week? Write it down and tell someone close to you to hold yourself accountable
.
▶️ get to sleep on time! Staying up super late and not putting your sleep first will hurt you the next day. Set that phone to airplane mode and get yourself some shut eye
.
▶️ plan your IG content in advance! Plan your topics and things you want to share in the notes section on your phone so all you have to do is copy paste and BAM, done in no time flat
.
▶️ Value your time: people expect a lot from you this time of year. Know when your plate is full and be okay saying no. If something isn’t bringing you closer to your goals, evaluate if you have time for it right now
.
.
What are your tips for keeping on track this time of year? 👇🏻👇🏻👇🏻

Not quite the weekend I was expecting...my new post is up on my blog all about my weekend away in hospital.

If it wasn’t for these two nutters still managing to make me smile and laugh I honestly don’t know what I would do without them! ❤️ I included the second picture as I don’t want to create a false image through my social media on what it’s like to actually be a cancer patient! 
Anyway, I’ll leave the link in my bio to my latest post if anyone fancies a read! 💋 xo

Yesterday was so much fun! This stuff means so much to us because at any point we can be back to our bubble. The last few months allowing us all to be “normal” have been just amazing. People often take for granted being able to be out and do things as a family. I am so thankful for Coltons progress with treatments and so thankful that we’ve been able to be out of our bubble for a few months. To watch him be able to do what all other kids do is exactly what I’ve fought for! #cvid #neutropenia #warriorfamily #zebra #disney #makingmemories #outofourbubble #advocatelikeamother

Missing these two peanuts tonight. I was wishing for/manifesting a night in a hotel and I got what looks like 3 nights in hospital. Not quite what I was hoping for but breakfast in bed none the less. Hopefully just precautionary as my immune system is super low right now. #neutropenia #lymphoma can’t wait to be back to 💯 and able to be the mom I want to be.

His platelet count dropped since Friday to 38 from 68, and his ANC dropped to 100 from 400. He was able to come home for now, but it’s only a matter of time before he ends up in Boston. I think our bags will stay packed... We expect that neutropenia fever to make an appearance at any moment.

Quick #carterstrong update: he received platelets overnight, which seem to be helping already (he’s dancing along to @fullerhouse ) He’s currently in contact and respiratory isolation. In order to go home, his counts need to recover, he needs to be fever free for 24 hrs (no temp so far today), and have clear cultures after 48 hrs. Please pray for his body to recover and not to get an infection. While his cough and runny nose are concerning, his lungs are clear so that is really good. He is not being transported to the proton center for his simulation appointment today, they want to give his body some time to recover, as of now they plan to transport him tomorrow for that appointment. #rhabdomyosarcoma #childhoodcancerawareness #cookchildrens #chemolife #neutropenia #firstplatelettransfusion

Early last week we received some extremely good news: our little boy has outgrown his neutropenia! After nearly two crazy years of worrying and regular hospitalizations, our little boy is healthy again! High five, Miso! 
Neutropenia is a condition where you don't have any or not enough of the white blood cells that fight bacteria, and thus causes you to be more susceptible to (potentially lethal) bacterial infections. In our case, this meant that every fever meant a trip to the emergency room, blood draws, frequent hospital stays and constant antibiotics. Fortunately for us, Jacob had 'autoimmune neutropenia' (there's different kinds), which usually resolves by itself. 
I will forever be grateful to all the amazing nurses and doctors who have helped out strong little boy through this, despite the fact that we are all very happy to forget all about this difficult time.

💉 ⚗️ Today I’m the Boy in the Bubble, trying to avoid contact with the outside world. I am working on my computer in my cousin’s RV and plan to stay here for the rest the day. {7 images}
.
At this stage in my chemotherapy cycle (Day 12 in Cycle 5 of 6), most of my blood cells have been destroyed. My hemoglobin is 7.2, just above the level where they would give me someone else’s blood (7.0). After two units of platelets and the outpatient clinic, my platelet count went from 8 to 20, which is the minimum.
.
My white blood count is virtually zero (0.1 where 4.0 is the minimum). That means I don’t have ability to fight infection. Fortunately, infection is very easy to detect. I just take my temperature every few hours and if it rises above 100.4°F, I am supposed to contact the hospital and would probably be readmitted. My only infection right now is a sore throat called “thrush”. The sore throat doesn’t bother me as I sit here, but swallowing is painful.
.
To treat the low WBC, I self-inject a very expensive medicine called #Zarxio or #Neupogen. I incorrectly reported earlier that it was $600 per dose, but you can get it from Costco $444. My insurance pays for it (after an initial deductible).
.
The needle of the syringe is about half an inch long, and I inject it through the skin of my belly. The needle is so thin that I can hardly feel it. After the injection, the needle automatically retracts so I can dispose of it anywhere. The drug migrates to my bone marrow, where it is supposed to stimulate white blood cells.
.
I just have to get through the next couple of days, and all my counts should start to rise. By Thanksgiving, I should be done with this cycle with one more to go. I will be less vulnerable to infection and should have normal energy, but my legs have atrophied after five months of chemotherapy, so I can’t walk very far or carry much.

The drug migrates to my bone marrow, where it is supposed to stimulate white blood cells. . I just have to get through the next couple of days, and all my counts should start to rise. By Thanksgiving, I should be done with this cycle with one more to go. I will be less vulnerable to infection and should have normal energy, but my legs have atrophied after five months of chemotherapy, so I can’t walk very far or carry much.

Made myself work out this morning. Didn't want to, cold weather means I should get extra time under the warm blanket.

What 10 months living in the hospital has taught me
.
.
▶️ you can’t always control what’s happens to you but you can control your reaction
.
▶️ sweats can be both comfy, cute and practical
.
▶️ being in a scary situation is not an excuse to treat other people badly
.
▶️ sleep when you can, naps are the best
.
▶️ the time is going to go by anyway, accomplish something worthwhile
.
▶️ thankful for a roku because the limited channels get real old real fast
.
▶️ the days are long but the months are short
.
▶️ I’m a pro at changing an #ostomybag

Cancer #chemotherapy is probably the most common cause of #neutropenia . People with chemotherapy-related neutropenia are #prone to infections while they wait for their #cellcounts to recover.

#Neutrophils are #manufactured in bone marrow — the #spongy tissue inside some of your larger bones. Anything that #disrupts neutrophil #production can result in neutropenia.

Muita gente não sabe o que é o efeito Nadir e que ele é o responsável pelo paciente ficar com o sistema imunológico baixo (Imunodeprimido).
O Efeito Nadir é o tempo de menor contagem de células do sangue durante a aplicação da quimioterapia (QT). Geralmente o efeito Nadir é entre o 7º ao 14º dia após a aplicação da QT, porém algumas QT podem ter efeito Nadir diferente, assim como alguns pacientes podem não ter recuperação e produzir novas células neste perído e permanecer no efeito Nadir por mais tempo. Durante esse período, o paciente tem uma diminuição significativa das hemácias, plaquetas e dos leucócitos ( principalmente dos neutrófilos que são as principais células que nos defendem contra infecções agudas). Nesse período, o paciente pode ter anemia , plaquetopenia e/ou neutropenia. Se o paciente tiver uma diminuição severa dos neutrófilos , ele pode ter um quadro conhecido como “Neutropenia Febril” e que se não for tratado, pode levar o paciente à morte por infecção. Como identificar esta neutropenia? Na maioria das vezes , o sintoma inicial é febre, que pode vir seguido de calafrios, fadiga e alterações respiratórias. Por isso, qualquer sintoma que apareça , o paciente precisa procurar o seu oncologista o mais rápido possível ou ir até um serviço de emergência.
Neste período, alguns cuidados devem ser reforçados na alimentação deste paciente para evitar possíveis riscos de infecção oportunista;
- O cuidado com a higiene dos alimentos é fundamental, assim como a higiene dos acessórios e das mãos de quem prepara a comida do paciente;
- O paciente deve evitar ao máximo comer na rua. E se isso acontecer, não consumir alimentos crus e nem expostos em buffets;
- O uso dos probióticos durante este período não é recomendado devido a falta de evidência científica mostrado eficácia e segurança dos mesmos;
E o mais importante : estes pacientes precisam ser acompanhados por profissionais capacitados no atendimento em oncologia.

Last day of chemo infusion for this 42-day cycle. I get a 2-week recovery before starting up my next AND LAST cycle. 😎
.
Got my on-body Neulasta device that will administer the drug in 27 hours. I joke that it looks like a little body bomb because it’s constantly blinking, and when it’s about to administer the drug, it starts beeping to give you a 10-second countdown. Once the device delivers the drug, I can take it off. I actually prefer this over having to give myself Neupogen shots daily. This drug lasts in your system for a few days.
.
And a random aside, I’m freaking famished. I forgot to bring a snack with me and now I’m feeling the hunger pangs after this morning’s workout. Gonna be eating pork belly and noodles tonight! 🐖🍜
