Two visits to Chelsea Westminster today

Two visits to Chelsea Westminster hospital today: once in the morning to give a blood sample and get an injection to increase the white cells count (his neutrophils were at zero), and another in late afternoon to have a platelets transfusion (his count was at 19).

In between he had a maths tutorship with M. Dreyfus.

Ten to fourteen days after chemo, blood counts typically drop (along hopefully with the death of any remaining microscopic mets, not visible in imaging tests but assumed to be potentially present). This is why chemo will continue until August despite the primary tumor in the tibia having been removed.

Paul's morale is good and despite his bone marrow being on strike, he looks fine to me.

Dad and Jean-Paul arrived today.
