No chemo today...

I went for my second cycle of chemo today and my white blood cell count is extremely low, so I wasn't able to do it. I'm post-poned at least a week. The low count means I could catch any type of infection because I don't have the means to fight it off.

They said in the meantime, to constantly wash my hands, stay away from crowds and obviously sick people, and to "make sure I wipe my bottom good." She actually said that. With her accent it sounded funny. Well, I guess it would sound funny in any voice!

Ummm, how does wiping your bottom "real good" prevent you from getting germs? Am I missing something here...?
