I thought I was doing fine running with Pepper, our dog, and singing in piano lesson until Tuesday (the 22nd) night.
Then I started having sore throat and next day I ran fever. Following the instruction from the hospital, Thursday(the 24th) morning I went to ER with George, where I was told to be admitted to the hospital.
My white blood cell count was too low and I was infected. For four days I was on IV getting several antibiotics and potassium and finally on Sunday (the 27th) I was discharged with normal WBCC.
At night Grain of Wheat former-voluntter Erica cooked Japanese dinner for me, who was tired of the hospital food. Gratitude!
Then this week my hair fell out. Monday (the 28th) I went to a small wig store referred by Jane, who recently completed her chemo. The lady at the store knows everything about wigs and picked several for me. It was fun to wear different styles sitting in front of a big mirror as if a model! Following her advice I chose a short straight hair. From Japan my sister, who found a cute hat site, sent me a hat with partial wig, also. I am having fun changing the wig to the hat and the hat to the wig.
