I’m incredibly nervous

We head into today, unaware of what it’s going to bring us in regards to Gavin’s and his ever changing health. 

It’s a somewhat busy schedule today. I need to get Gavin in for his bloodwork, first thing in the morning. I have his IVIG infusion after that as well. We also have two appointments for Lizze in the afternoon. 

I’m incredibly nervous about how Gavin’s labs are going to turn out. 

The labs from Friday were a mixed bag. It was like a free for all with his numbers. There are three main things we’re watching. We’re closely tracking his Neutrophil levels, WBC count, and his platelets. 

This past Friday, his Neutrophil went down again, his WBC count remained the same from the previous day, and his platelets when up. 

At this point in time, there’s absolutely no rhyme or reason for these changes, and that keeps me up at night. Even if his numbers climbed over the weekend, we don’t know why they climbed or why they keep dropping in the first place. This make me very nervous and that’s contributing in a big way to my overall stress levels. 

For the first time, I’m starting to really worry about my own health, despite my efforts to maintain it.
