Chemo Days for Cycle 5 are behind us. No life-threatening issues, although Maura did get a transfusion of two units of red blood cells yesterday. Fortunately, it was not under the same scary circumstances as at the end of chemo in Cycle 3. Nevertheless, it's disturbing that her red blood cell count is not recovering quickly. The transfusion has not perked her up as we might have liked--no burst of energy today. Instead, she is very quiet, too tired to engage in conversation.
My God, how I love this person.
