This is just a quick update to my previous post. Yesterday, I went to the hospital for a blood test and the results showed my white blood count has recovered somewhat. There was something wrong with the blood lab yesterday and the results of the neutrophils hadn’t come back before I left the hospital so I don’t know those results for sure but the doctor was satisfied that the increased WBC also meant that the neutrophils would have recovered somewhat. The doctor and I were very relieved by the results. It meant that I responded to the Neupogen shots and that’s a good thing.
So, my 60-day bone marrow biopsy will be delayed until Friday or next Tuesday. The doctor wanted a few more days for my blood counts to settle down before the biopsy so as not to get vague or confusing results. That’s fair.
OK, back to not thinking about any of this until my next hospital day. That is how I am coping these days.
