Cycle 7 Postponed

She went to Guy's yesterday to start her penultimate cycle, but they've put it off until Monday, as she has another infection. She's back on antibiotics, so that should sort it out fairly quickly, but the delay has put her end-of-Chemo-&-Big-Birthday celebrations back yet again, which is upsetting for her.

On Monday, the Onc talked about putting her on a permanent low-dose prophylactic course of antibiotics to stop the constant infections. They don't want her to keep having to rush (or be rushed) to A&E either; they want to keep her from getting hospital-acquired infections in addition to the normal low-immunity acquired ones!! Oh blummin' 'eck!! - being treated has as many dangers as NOT being treated!!
