Delayed Again

It's been a while since I had a treatment delay. I had become comfortable with my schedule and started depending on it for future plans. I should know better by now. This morning my blood tests came back with a low platelet count. It's been low for a few weeks, but was still hovering around 100 which is the general cutoff that they use to decide if you can handle treatment. I'm down to 89 so I have a week to rest and hope that my bone marrow will produce some more platelets. My white count is low too, but not so low that they'd delay treatment based on it. I'm frustrated that I have to wait a week. Now I have to redo my schedule for the next two weeks. Ugh!
