No red cell transfusion till Thursday:
RBC = 3.22(L)
HGB = 9.7(L)
HCT = 28.5(L)
Platelets = 5(LL)
We wish these counts could improve.
WBC = 0.3(LL)
ANC = 0.0(LL)
Creatinine = 0.98(L)
This count has been low the last few visits. He needs more fluid if it is high, so we went down to half a liter of infusion daily for a week or two until we left for California when he had no hydration for those four days other than all the water he could drink. The count remained low so we are no longer having to infuse saline each day until further notice. We don't see this as a good thing, but in fact, the lower number now represents loss of muscle mass.
We are trying to work on protein counts ...
With only one unit of platelets transfused, we were out of the clinic in good time today which meant we were home in time for Auger's soccer game. It was the last of the season and we hadn't made it to any of them yet. Here we are with this awesome family.
It has been awhile since I have had little children to watch like that and I had forgotten how fun it is to watch them play a sport at that age. It was fun!
We had some fun on the swings too.
We also got a surprise visit from Shawna ..., we were playing in her back yard (or the park behind her yard), so she walked over to watch and visit.
It was a good day!
