D + 15: … How high are the ANCs …

“… 374 and risin’…”

It was another restless night; however, Karen is feeling better. We hope that the worst of the mucositis is behind her.

For the statisticians: White cell count: 550. – (4500 to 11000)
Absolute Neut. Count: 374. – (1500 to 7800)
Platelets: 16. – (150 to 350)

Karen did some laps this morning, and is trying to relax and rest a little.

Tag Line: ( sort of..) Johnny Cash, 5 ft high and risin’.

  6. I was wondering, could you put a chart on where with several colors for the different counts that we are watching? It would be great for us old people who can’t remember the last counts. And it would be easier for everyone to see the progress. Just a thought!
    Cathy 🙂
