Don’t panic Mr Mainwaring!

…….Easier said than done when your blood counts are starting to hit rock bottom.

My neutrophils have now hit 0.1 and my platelets are dropped by over half (now 66) . This means I am incredibly high risk for getting an infection of sorts, basically my immune system is non existent. There are hardly any white blood cells and what cells are there are pretty useless at the moment anyway (they are brand new and haven’t been exposed to anything like a baby). Not to mention the fact I am already fighting an infection/virus.

Will be continuing with GCSF injections to hopefully boost white blood cells over the next few days. In the meantime I guess I need to be resting and eating chocolate to help the regeneration process!

Happy Easter ya’ll!

    Pete & I are very sorry to hear that your white blood cells and neutrophils are so low. It must be very disappointing for you. Do hope that you manage to rest and enjoy your chocolate over the next few days. Thinking of you loads you courageous, special & inspirational lady xxx
