The platelet and white blood cell counts were again below the recommended lower limit this morning. The number of white blood cells turned out to be so low, that starting a new course of chemotherapy (which will lower the number even further) is absolutely too dangerous. Despite the extra injection. Another week delay, because I’m too prone to infections. Postponing cures is also not ideal, so it will be a bit exciting at the end of next week.

Just like the doctors, I chose to simply ignore the third blood value, the low Hb value (5.6): After training with the onco-physiotherapist, I started the unexpected week off with my brother with a long walk of a few hours with some small climbs in a national park. How beautiful the Netherlands is this time of year!
