Love Those Neutrophils

Guys. Good news!

Dr. Young Guy has ordered weekly CBCs with a white blood cell differential after my rituximab infusions, since my last cycle about a year ago caused my neutrophils to drop to dangerously low levels.

My neutros have been skimming along just with enough to be considered normal, until today. Today's numbers came back a happy and healthy 3.71 (normals 1.80-8.30 x10(9)/L).

Woo hoo!

I was out running a few errands when the email notifying me that my lab results were available. Thank goodness for my iPhone. I was able to log into my account at the clinic and see the CBC numbers right there in the grocery store. Yessss. I love technology.

I felt a happy rush of adrenaline; so I zipped through the check out lane, hopped into Goldie, and zoomed around town spending far too much moolah and -- more importantly -- all of my energy reserves; which left me pooped out on the couch for the remainder of the day. Yeah. Pooped out but with a big grin on my face. Let the mouse energy curve begin, people!

See y'all tomorrow.
