Day 6 after Chemo #1...Rash

7:00pm - Not feeling too good. Bones/Joints are aching. Hot bath and to bed where she didn't get a great sleep.

10:30am - Connie woke up feeling pretty good still. However, she's still got this rash that reared it's ugly head yesterday. Last night she called the Dr. and they said to come in this morning. She phoned in while on her way to the Dr. office and they told her they were booked. Long story short, she won and the Dr. saw her. Her comment when calling to report the results was, "When your Dr. says, "This is a concern!" then I'm a little concerned. He told her he didn't think it was an allergic reaction to medication and had her continue on the antibiotics from a couple days ago and ordered another antibiotic to help with the rash. He also took blood and ran it through the white blood cell counter and found that she was low already...that shouldn't happen for another several days, so that was a concern. She has another appt on Tue (had already been scheduled) and he will do a follow-up at that time to see if anything had changed. She's still feeling good and is headed into work.
