Blood Counts

Lisa's blood counts are back and as expected very low.

We need to be on high alert for infection and keep her away from crowds, sick people and germs.

Her hemoglobin is at 9.2
Her WBC is below .4
Her Platelets are about 86
And her ANC is below 400 which means they can't get an accurate reading.
She will get blood work and a shot every day until her ANC is > than 1500

Her UTI is still causing concern and now they see blood in her urine so we need to keep a close eye on all that.

So long as her face doesn't take on the color of her long lost family members we should be okay.
