Bingo Day & Blood Cell Counts on the Rise

Teddy was playing bingo today. Poor teddy fell asleep before bingo was over though, so much excitement! Good thing everyone gets prizes.

The real excitement is that Liam's blood counts are on the rise. The ones that the doctors want up are the white blood cells and ANC, ANC needs to be over 500 to be discharged, they should be over 500 tomorrow, but we can't get discharged due to the antibiotics Liam needs he can only get through IV. They are looking at options for us, best case is we get discharged on Friday, but I still wouldn't be surprised if that doesn't happen. They don't want to jeopardize Liam's health by not giving the appropriate antibiotics.

Liam's Count Normal Range When take action
White Blood Cells 1.7 4.0-14.0 n/a
Hemoglobin 112 110-157 <80
Platelets 19 150-400 <10-20
ANC 400
