Neupogen shot number 4 was efficiently administered by Vineetha as usual.

But today I noticed that there was a small patch of blood at the injection site. As well as that, the hospital had warned me that I would be neutropenic by the end of the week, so I now need to be extra careful to avoid infection.

The advice from the hospital was to attend the Emergency Room if I had a fall or had a high temperature. However, I was warned that the Emergency Room doctors should not carry out any tests on me without first talking to the Transplant Unit. Apparently they have a tendency of carrying out every test under the sun, and I could possibly end up with a million-dollar hospital bill. That is something I am very keen to avoid.

Tomorrow will be a rest day, and then we will be on the Day of Harvest. I need a collection of 2 million stem cells. A fellow CIDP patient had his harvest on Thursday and reached a count of 17.89 million stem cells, so I am quite looking forward to seeing if I can reach that target.
