Dom's April Numbers.... Creeping Back up and Looking Good!

Hi gang-

We spent a LONG, LONG day at Tulane yesterday.  Left our house before 8am and didn't get home until around 7pm.  Yikes.  It was a comedy of errors.  We had both his monthly infusion, along with his M-SPIKE test, and an appointment to see his doctor.

One hand didn't know what the other was doing, so we were bumped from the waiting room, to the lab, to the doctor, to the infusion room, back to the waiting room, and finally hunkered down for a few hours in the infusion room.

Normally, these folks are "Johnny on the Spot".  Dunno what the hell happened yesterday, but they were a mess.

So-  In a couple of weeks, we'll get confirmation that Dom remains in Complete Remission/response 21 months post Stem Cell Transplant.

In the meanwhile, his numbers all went up.  I guess that the experts knew what they were talking about when they said that his bout with upper respiratory infections effected his blood.   :)

HCT:    33.1
WBC:    5.3
ANC:    3000
PLATELET:    220

Still haven't reached where they were in January, but they're heading in the right direction!

Have a great weekend, guys.  We sure will!
