Gavin’s labs have come back

      4 Comments on Gavin’s labs have come back

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.

I don’t understand why you can’t get in to see hematology; it seems like you’ve been waiting for a while and I know that sometimes specialists can get booked up, but I’ve always had a nurse navigator or someone from my doctor’s office make that call and get me in almost immediately. Can’t Dr. Reynolds pull some strings or something to get you in?


Well, hematology isn’t a special needs issue so that part really doesn’t matter and world renowned or not, if they felt that time was of the essence they would have Gavin in their office tomorrow. I don’t say this as a slam, but more to put your mind at ease. If they felt that Gavin’s condition was serious enough they would get him in there. I spent 2 years making my way through the medical system for cancer and you realize how serious your situation is when you get test results on Friday and the best oncologist on the east… Read more »
