Thanks littlebit71. I asked mu OC if I needed a shot to get my neutrophil level up and she said not at this time. I am scheduled to resume my treatments this Friday. I am eating extra protein to boost my levels as well. Will let you know how it goes on Friday.

You’re welcome. I’m glad it wasn’t down as much as mine. Always praying for for you and all the others.
God Bless and keep the faith ♥️♥️♥️♥️

Just check with your OC to make sure that is the correct course for you – to increase your protein level. I'm not sure if that suggestion was based on the type of dx I have. But I will say it helped me. I got real creative with what I would put in my protein shake in the morning – my protein shake included a high protein milk (Fairlife – lower in sugar and higher in protein); a protein powder (I liked the whey protein better than the plant protein – whey blended smoother) and greek yogurt then whatever fruit I wanted to add for some taste. The Fairlife company also offers some real high protein ready made drinks – which were pretty good. I knew if I at least started each morning with a real high protein drink I didn't stress too much about what I ate the rest of the day – but I still tried to eat things that were higher in protein.
