Getting Ready for Tomorrow

I had really been trying to put tomorrow out of my mind, when yesterday my husband asked how I was feeling, if I was ready for the big appointment. My reply to him was I'll be ready when we have good news from the last blood test.

Yesterday was the last blood test....for some reason I had it set in my mind all would be good, Zoe's counts would be up.

This morning I got the call...the test was in.....the news was not good. Not only was her WBC low it was lower then it was last week. Here Monocytes% is high, and her Neutrophils-Absolute are low. It has been interesting to watch how the different tests vary and at different times something else is off verses other tests.

I asked questions but they couldn't be answered by simple answers.....just a "the hematologist is where she needs to be right now -- they know all there is to know and will help her"

I was told to be prepared it is a possibility they will want to do a bone marrow biopsy. I'm hoping they won't want to do it tomorrow and let me have some time to prepare her for it if it needs to be done.

So for now......no answers just the same old low WBC along with other tests being off too.

I'm hoping tomorrow brings news...and good news at that!
