Ready for the weekend.
Spent most of the day today at the clinic. Received a blood transfusion, spinal tap, and shot in the stomach to boost my white count. The spinal tap was unpleasant again. It took 3 attempts this time - partly because I was a bit too jumpy. It's hard to stay still when that big needle is going in your back. The Dr. told me to double the dosage on the anxiety pills next time so I'll be more relaxed. Anyway, back home now and still pretty tired so will take a nap again. They will check my blood again on Monday. 'Till then, I need to take it easy as I am at a higher risk again of receiving infection for about the next 4 days.
