Well, I'm sorry to say I haven't felt so good today. Ever since they woke me at 2:30 this morning to take blood, I've just been blah and droopy. And I had a spell where I nearly blacked out. Wound up sitting on the bathroom floor for a bit to get OK again. The doc said it's likely too much Lasix. I was also very low on potassium this morning. The pills didn't get it back up high enough so they gave me an IV dose as well.
Neutrophil count: 0.16. Maybe I can blame that on the Lasix as well. Probably not. But I'm trying to do a good job of visualising more and more of them. I am so ready to go home and they need to be a lot higher than this to get out of here. So think positively when they take blood @ 2:00-2:30 that mine will just be swimming with neutrophils.
Mike has spent the afternoon with me, but I mostly slept through the early part. I had to get red blood today and am still on all the anti drugs, oxygen and breathing treatments. So we hope tomorrow's count is better.
