Bumps in the road

Hey guys! 🙂 Things are still going well but a bit bumpy.

After a two week break from sprycel treatment, my counts didn’t recover the way we had hoped so I started again last week at a half dose. As a side effect to treatment I’m experiencing Moderate neutropenia which is a low count of the white blood cell that keeps your immune system working. 

As a result I am now sick again, for the second time since returning from Mexico and have been stuck at home, on this couch since Tuesday on another round of antibiotics😷. This is probably the sickest I’ve been since I was a child, but at least Netflix exists now to keep me busy 😜

My doctor says it’s very normal in the beginning for your body to struggle to adjust to treatment and hopefully over time the bumps will get smoothed out. Otherwise I’m doing well, staying positive and looking forward to putting out a new Runaway angel single soon! I hope everyone out there In Facebook land is doing wonderful and enjoying the nicer weather! Big hugs
