Went back in today for blood work prior to scheduled chemo tomorrow and the results came back my platlets were now 158 but my white blood cell count down to 1178 and to find out my liver enzymes have sky rocketed all of a sudden and now they want a pet scan ASAP so now waiting for the call for that appointment! I just want this last round down and behind me
