After updating this morning I got a call from my Oncologist. I figured it was a follow-up to a message he left yesterday, but no - something new. My blood work indicated a low white blood cell count and I needed to come into the office right away for a Neopogen shot (which would hopefully boost my system up to normal levels). The last time I had a low white blood cell count I ended up with an infection and a 7 day hospital stay.
Needless to say I was on my way within minutes - I am on alert this weekend for any sign of a fever.
Hopefully all will be well with follow-up blood work scheduled for next Tuesday. If I am going to be seeing any of you soon, good health and clean hands are very important!
