Scott’s bloodwork looked pretty good. Anc 2500, hgb 13.6 (WOW!!), monocytes 11 and wbc 3.9. I was hoping the white count would be a little higher but was reassured that this was perfectly fine. Hopefully as time goes by it will creep up to normal. Some of his chemistries were a little off but again was told there was nothing major to worry about. His spinal tap was done with no problems but we won’t have the results for a day or two.
Sadly though, a little boy at our clinic died this morning. Thai had been fighting t-cell lymphoma (which is very similar and treated the same as t-cell leukemia) for many years and was one of the bravest, smiliest kids I’ve ever had the privilege to meet. He was truly awesome. A sad day. Rest easy little Thai.
