My neutrophils are just tormenting me. Yesterday, on Valentines Day, I got the news that they had finally increased a bit to .1 (which equals 100 neutrophils - remember I need 500 to bust out of here.) but this morning was back down to zero. I can't tell you how devastated I was to get that news.
The good news is that I'm still healthy; no fevers or rash. And my white blood cell count did increase a bit, so at least that is going in the right direction. Remember, neutrophils are a special type of white blood cell that help fight infection.
Please keep those positive thoughts and prayers coming that those neutrophils start to rise so I can go home. Thanks so much!

Kelly - am glad to hear that you are "healthy"... now for those neutrophils - is there a "neutrophil dance" (think rain dance) that we should be doing to get them up in addition to the prayers? (SMILE)
Hope you have a restful night!
Many hugs, smiles and prayers...
to fatastagirl- there surely is a neutrophil dance and it's done at hospitals all over the country! there is also a specific ANC dance and for babies in the NICU, a "nippling" dance. :)
I am going to do the ANC dance for you Kelly, and throw in the nipple dance while I am at it.
Hmmm...I know how to do the Texas 2-step...naah. I better go light some candles. Yea, that's it! A little fire to light up the cosmos! For Kelly, and neutrophil genesis!
WebMd read on neutrophils...check.
clapping for pitchers and catchers reporting this weekedn...double check.
