10.23.2008 - Bad Lab Results

I went in for lab results on 10.23.2008 and they drew my blood and five minutes later had my results, as usual. They can do it that fast because they are a hematology lab and don't send anything out. My neutrophil count was zero. That level alarmed my chemo nurse. Evidently, neutrophils are the most active of the white blood cells and are the first to attack microorganisms. My nurse wanted me to begin injecting myself with Neupogen daily and taking an antibiotic daily until my next appointment, which will be on Tuesday.

Sorry you have no white blood cells that's kind of scary. I'm glad your MRI was good news hang in there.
