After #2 donation WBC 5.0 with 4.8 Neutrophils- wow! The doctors only expected a .5 bump!
They only last about 1 day- his counts did return to .4 WBC and 0 WBC last night before the transfusion. So Donor #1 is in the lead with volume and Donor #2 leading neutrophil count.
Gary is fighting away today which takes alot of his energy. He is frustrated with his mind thinking slow. His breathing improves with the use of oxygen.
The pseudomonas bug that was found in his blood was also found in his lungs. It is a difficult bug but with the antibiotics and increased neutrophils - the bugs will be gone.
