Platelets, hemoglobin and walking 5 miles a day...

The past couple of weeks I have been walking 5 miles a day, for 5 days of the week with my friend Ally. It really makes me feel great. However at the same time, my bloodwork is coming back crazy. For the last 2 weeks I haven't been able to have chemo because of low blood platelets and hemoglobin. Platelets are produced in the bone marrow and control blood clotting, while hemoglobin and white blood cells fight infection. The thing that is so strange is that I feel great, you would think that I would be tired or something.
Anyway so I am back on massive greens and grains in hopes that it will start to straighten things out .Today I had to get a lovely neulasta shot,( which makes me feel like hell by the way ) to boost them back up.
Hopefully everything will be back in order by Tuesday so I can get my massive dosage of poison. Anyway, just a short post  to keep track of how I am.  Stay cool!!

Happy New Year 2012

Dec 27th was my 2 year cansirversary. Hard to believe really. I am still fighting, but am very thankful to have had the first 2 years pretty easy. I started on new chemo the day before Thanksgiving that didn't work so am now on 2 new drugs and had 2 rounds of radiosurgery to my brain since then. I am doing ok though . I could make this post about how crappy I feel, but I am not going to. I am going to focus on the positive things in my life.
I had an amazing Christmas, the people that I spent it with gave me renewed hope. I am so loved. My family is amazing. My son is always so happy , I can be feeling so bad and then he will say something that has me hysterical and I completey  forget for a moment what I was miserable about in the first place. he is growing up so fast and what a remarkable human being he is becoming.
I intend to fight harder than ever this year for my health, my life and happiness, too many people love me and I cannot bear to think how badly they will be hurt if I don't get better.
This morning, I made myself take a long walk, tommorrow, I will do the same.It is crazy how much better this makes me feel. I have also started my green juice regimen again, it was tough to drink them for a few days, but I can tell a difference when I don't.
So screw you cansir!! I will not let you win..
Happy New Year to All, may this be the best year of your lives. I intend to make it mine.

Sending Love and Light!!!
