We went to the lab at the hospital yesterday morning. Rick had fasted about 13 hours by the time they drew blood.
We asked how long a total blood count would take to know the results. She said they weren't real busy, so she would put a "rush" on it if we wanted to wait a few minutes.
Just a few minutes later, the lab guy came out ...
Now, in January, Rick's total blood count was at 6.8 ... which meant that he had to go into the hospital and receive 3 units of blood. In February, his total blood count was at 8.3 ... which was just barely above the "legal limit", meaning no hospital stay - but almost.
Yesterday? 10.8!!!!! Praise God!!! Thank you Jesus!!!
Even the lab techs said it was good!!! Especially considering what it was in January and February!!!
Now ... we just wait to hear what Dr. Tobin and Dr. Arneke have to say.
And we pray that the other numbers are all just as good and encouraging as this total blood count has been!!! :-)
So why "Scattered Feathers" ? ? ?
