Still feeling good!

I have been feeling good so far, just a little fatigued. My skin is very dry and it looks like I have been in a bar fight. No I am kidding it is not that bad. My scalp is itching like crazy and the nurses told me that it is a sign I will lose my hair sometime soon. That is OK, I have a lot of great scarfs and hats. The doctors say I still will be in here for awhile, which is what I expected. I start neupogen shots on Saturday to boost my immune system, and I am now considered neutropenic, which means I am highly susceptible to infection. I can't leave my room without mask and gloves and no one can come in if they have any symptoms of a cold or infection(or just wear a mask). Here are my numbers for the last few days!!!!!

7/23 1.77 1.50
7/24 1.03 .83

I am getting lower and lower!!!!!

Party at my Hospital/Dorm room tonight!!!!

Love ya,
