11,000 white blood cells today

My white blood cell count jumped dramatically in the past three days, from 500 to 2000 to 11,000. Normal is 7000 - 20,000, I'm told.

Platelets are still low, so Rik will hopefully be able to order red grape juice from somewhere. I'm reliably told by other cancer patients that red, not purple, grape juice boosts platelets. So we will see what we will see...

  2. I'm happy about your white blood count! Sorry about your diarrhea, although now I can't stop envisioning you dancing to the bathroom and singing at the top of your lungs...
