The Best News Yet

I'm always happy to see Dr. Forman during his early morning rounds. This morning I was doubly happy because he's been away for a few days AND he came bearing good news.

My white counts more than doubled since yesterday to an astounding 2.8, and my red blood cells are still maintaining their levels. As I predicted, my platelets fell to 15, so I'll need another transfusion today. Dr. Forman said that platelets are always the last to rise.

The great news is that I may be able to go home THIS WEEK. The stubborn platelets are not an issue because Dr. Forman said that I can easily come in to CoH for transfusions. This is the best, most unexpected news ever!
