Gavin’s labs have finally come in and it’s better than bad news. His Absolute Neutrophil is up to 2.8 from 2.4 last week. This is good news because the numbers are moving in the right direction. At the same time, we still have no idea what’s going on.
We’re still waiting to get into Hematology because this is the best chance we have to identify what’s going on and how we can address it.
I feel a sense of relief at he moment because his members are good right now and will probably be good for the next couple of days. I can’t let my guard down because we have learned over time, that with Gavin, what goes up must come down. It’s like we’re waiting for the proverbial other shoe to drop. It always does.
Truthfully, it’s not easy for me to ever be comfortable with any of these labs because they change so quickly.
For the moment, and despite these other fears, I’m still grateful for the news we have received today.
