Neutrophils are Amazing

Take a look at this:


See that? It's an AWESOME electron microscope picture of an actual neutrophil devouring a nasty anthrax bacteria. Phagocytosis is a wonderful thing.

More. I want more neutrophils, people. Just like this one....minus the anthrax. I'm guessing a million or so should do it. By Thursday, which is when my next labs will be drawn.

Until then I'm wishing you healing white light and peace.

Sending positive vibes to your neutrophils. Perhaps you could talk kindly to them, like they say helps plants?

Sending good healing thoughts your way for Thursday. Good luck.

Just go straight to the Healer Himself-Jesus.

Those things look so cool. I imagine a lot of scientists are looking to develop something, a shot or an infusion to correct this dilemma.

May God bless you Julia.

How neat. Thanks for this. How serendipitous that I would check your latest posts and find this. The fine needle biopsy on my lymph node showed 'rare neutrophils' being the curious gal that I am I researched and found they are the first line of defense of white blood cells, often attacking the bad guys within hours of us catching something......the commandos I call them :)
