I hate the idea of waking …

As a result, we worry all the time

I was able to get a hold of Gavin’s psychiatrist’s office this afternoon and got the lab results from his blood draw on Monday morning. I actually only got his Absolute Neutrophil count but that’s a good chunk of information. His Absolute Neutrophil count has climbed up a couple points from 2.0 to 2.4. This …

The doctor called with heartbreaking news

I received a call today from Gavin’s doctor. When I saw who it was, my stomach knotted up and my heart sank. They never call unless it’s bad news. I was right. Apparently, Gavin’s numbers are crashing again. I’m currently waiting for him to come out from having his labs drawn for the second time …
