I don't have my lab values as of yet but they tell me it is the lowest.
Today is the day that my counts should start going back up!
They tell me there is an infection in my blood in which they think the SOURCE is the Hickman catheter or my PORT so both has to come out tomorrow or the next day. They try to tell you that you are just ahead of the game but it really feels like I took a step back. Once they take care of the source, hopefully they can get rid of the blood infection and cover it with the right antibiotic.
I got two units of blood and a bag of platelets along with a bunch of other stuff. My throat is felling a bit better, but it is still raw.
Not to happy but I have to really look at this as a step ahead of the game! It's hard but if I look at it that way, things look better. I was going to have to have the Hickman and the Port removed on the day of my discharge anyway.
