Good Counts for Good Weather
The sun shone as we drove the two hours to the hospital. Our appointment was late enough that we could have breakfast beforehand, and early enough for a late lunch afterward.
Wednesday brings a whole different crowd to the Hem/Onc department as most of the patients seen then are Hematology patients, so not so many little bald headed kids around.
We arrived at 10:30… wait, that means we were early. Holy Cow! How did that happen? We were taken back in an okay amount of time, put in a room and seen promptly. Weird.
Also weird, the VCR no longer comes in a quick little push, it is NOW, an IV drip. So Isa had to have the sticky port attached rather than a quick in, out, in, out. Port in, Blood out, VCR in, Port out. What did you think I meant?
Lovely lovely lovely counts….. sucky sucky sucky but highly efficient spleen. Still enlarged, even though the NP said she didn’t feel an enlarged liver, so for that we’re good. They did not take a green tube… I have no idea what it is called, not a CBC, but the other one, the labby labs. So we can only guess how her Liver functions are.. (Sorry just realized I capitalized liver in the Asian Medicine way).
K, ready for these…..
ANC >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> 2500 Ta dah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! bye bye neutropenia, you can kiss my ANC ! ( okay, my daughter’s ANC)
the only thing that seems a little wonky is that they described some macrocytes, ovalcytes, and polychromasia…
I have no idea what that means, and I sure as hell ain’t gettin’ no google diagnosis tonight. I feel too good to think about what could be going wrong. Not to mention that with a Mercury retrograde in action, I’ma wondering if you’ll even be able to read this post!
So back on meds, at 50% of the dose, and for the time being, a little scooting and bike riding and other things that require the feet to leave the ground.
