Friday ~ 2 October: Day 76

OTU Clinic this morning. The good news is my platelets are at 198! This is up with my highest number since before I got sick. My red count was down and my hematocrit was only 28. At 28 I get transfused as that is my threshold on where I can function. It takes a while to type and cross, so after I got the go ahead from my doc, we left for about 4 hours and came back in the afternoon to get the transfusion. My neutrophils are still good, even though my whites are down. So basically this was a good day. All my other counts looked good, except the GenGraf. They've upped the dosage of it slightly again. The exciting thing was that today my blood type has changed from O positive to A positive. Now I am A+!!! This is great to go along with me being 22 and exotic. LOL.
