Blood Count Results

Hi, everyone!

I just wanted to post a quick update since I'd mentioned that Max was going in for lab work this week to check his blood counts.We got the results yesterday and . . .

. . . they're still low.

They're marginally higher but still not where we we want them to be. His white blood cell counts went from about 2,400 to 3,000 which is an improvement but ideally we'd like them to be closer to 5,000. We saw our transplant coordinator yesterday and she said that if Max were in the hospital, they'd require everyone who came into his room to wear a mask and gown which means that, you guessed it, we're still on house arrest.

We won't check his levels again until almost mid-July so we just have to keep on doing what we're doing. Thinking positively, at least we're at home with him and Max doesn't have to be in the hospital this whole time.
