Day + 18 Health Score 81
They told me that once I was out the the hospital going to the ITA for follow up, I would need to be patient and expect to wait. They were right. My labs were drawn at 10:00 AM and because of a computer glitch, we did not have any results until 2:00 PM. But it was worth the wait. My platelets were 99,000 (the goal is to be above 50,000) My white count is 9,000. I am back to normal. They were quite amazed at the rapid rate of my recovery. The Hickman catheter was removed! If my labs remain stable through Thursday, we will leave beautiful downtown Palo Alto and go home to Lincoln. Iwill see Barbie tomorrow and hopefully tonight will be the last night that we are apart. Every day just keeps getting better.
