Why good news doesn’t always make me feel better

I just got an email from Gavin’s doctors office in regards to his labs from yesterday. The results from yesterday have his Absolute Neutrophil count back up to 3.0. The number is still on the lower end of things but it’s significantly better than it was yesterday.

What worries me is the why. Why are the numbers so drastically different?

Did the lab make an error the first time? What if the lab error is this time around? Is it even possible for the numbers to fluctuate so rapidly?

I don’t know what to think and I’m waiting to hear back. The only other thing we could do is run his labs a third time and see where we are but I don’t want to put Gavin through that. I’m so fucking lost right now and I don’t know what to do..
