Complete Blood Counts

I have been maintaining good counts for a while now. I am really happy about that. Unfortunately the maintenance medication still has it’s rough spots. The weekly Methatrexiate shot gives me a 36 hour headache and the daily Mercaptopurine still gives me the occasional mouth sore. Last week was filled with both headache and mouth sores. This week, much better. This week’s counts:

White Blood Cells: 4.7
Hemoglobin: 15.3
Platelets: 287,000
Neutrophils: 2,900

Last week:

White Blood Cells: 5.8
Hemoglobin: 15.0
Platelets: 267,000
Neutrophils: 3,700

I wonder about the fluctuations. I may have to read up on that sometime. Nah. I’ll just ask my Oncologist/Hematologist. You know, I don’t know anyone else who openly shares their blood counts with the world. Makes me pretty darn personable, don’t you think???
