WBC up to 2.2 and ANC finally registered at 2.0! Those bad boys are in there chomping away at the bugs! The actual transfusion was pretty uneventful. His fever was down to 99ish most of the night- not sure if that was due to neutrophils or pre meds. His cough is more productive which does seem to show neutrophils are busy in the lungs.
I didn't mention yesterday that the doctors took away Tylenol. He pretty much watched the clock every 4 hours for next dose to Tylenol to relieve the fever. His liver enzymes shot up so the doctor said during morning rounds he was going to "cut back" the Tylenol. I asked what does cutting back mean and he said he won't get any. The big meanies- cutting back is different from cutting out! We are looking for the new white blood cells to help out!
Here's to a day of hungry neutrophils!!
