I got ANCs today! (again)

Woohoo! 192 ANCs just reported. Body on the mend. Maybe 420 was too high over the weekend, and I think yesterday’s zero was just wrong. 192 seems right.

I’ve been having terrible night sweats since yesterday – 4 times they needed to change my bedding last night after waking up sopping wet. I know I have some immune system fighting something! As a matter of fact, they took me off one of the anti-biotics but as of today, given the sweats, they put me back on the Vancomycin.

So I’m feeling encouraged today, but know that the ANC number can vary as I start to recover. So don’t expect a steady rise, necessarily; it’ll be an upward trend that we want to watch out for.

  5. My internet competency has the equivalent efficiency of an echidna knitting booties for a seven legged octopus but l have to ask you Seth… Were you responsible for the ‘Tangentally Related Links’? “Designer Hospital Gowns…. ” Now if thats not something to work towards as you zoom laps around that place l think it’s certainly a reason for one hell of a party theme when you’re up to it….

    Glad Russell made it safe and well. He couldn’t be doing anything better than hanging out with you my friend.

  6. Maybe the night sweats had something to do with the Facebook launch! Alas, you and Peter have something in common!

    Glad to hear you are starting to get some good news. It’s about damn time! You deserve it.

    Keep on fighting, chief.
