So got my labs back early this morning and it was a no go for chemo. Once again the platelet count was too low to administrate the chemo drugs. A bit sad about that as I prepare myself emotionally, physically and spiritually. It's a tough thing to literally sike yourself up for the inevitable you are about to face. So some what disappointing but there is always a better plan the Lord has in mind. Instead of sitting in my pod and receiving a chemo infusion for the day I took a drive to the Boise airport to pick up my sister. We then had a nice lunch and my good friend Pauletta was able to join us. We made a few quick shopping stops in the big city, always on a look out for a bargain. Of course we made our last stop at Starbucks for the long drive home to Buhl. It was so fun to be out in the fall fresh air. So the lesson again for the day is that planning is just pointless. God always has a better plan. It's good to just throw the hands in the air and enjoy the ride. I am learning this is best and not to trust in my best laid plans. They seem to crumble before my eyes. There is not much I can do about the platelet count, but wait. Hopefully they will be back up next week and we can continue with round 7.
