I thought I was going home today. Wrong!
Today I have my last (I think) IV chemo drug: Asparaginase. This drug is ALL specific and will keep my mutated white blood cells (specifically) from getting some enzyme or something that they need. However, sometimes people are allergic to Asparaginase so I have to stay here ALL DAY and be under observation. Tomorrow morning I get my last dose of Vancristine and I can go home... if my counts haven't fallen.
Oh man. I'm staring down a WHOLE day in the hospital without the benefit of being heavily sedated. This is depressing.
