Well, a couple of months ago when we went to see Larrys doc, I told the Doctor that we needed Larrys numbers to come up substancially or at least still be creeping up in time for us to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary…..which is today. Guess what?? I got what I wanted. His counts last week were: Hgb. at 9.8, Hct. at 28.6, Platelets at 37,000 and white count at 2.0 (still not great but it seems he is always fighting something off). Still not in the "normal" range, but hopefully getting there.
We are not doing much in the way of celebrating except trying to enjoy life a bit, but that in itself is plenty.
I am looking into having a blood drive this summer and becoming a platelet donor myself. It seems to be the least we could do. We are so grateful that the blood was there when he needed it.
Just wanted to share some good news…..
