Colds and Flu Season

Our son Zach brought something home the other day that involved having the body aches and a slight fever. After Beth’s recent blood test, they called us to let her know that her white blood cell count was down to 1.7 – that’s the lowest I’ve seen it.

White blood cells are the ones that help you fight infections, and so, now Beth has got the body aches and feels a cold coming on. This week, too, is going to be another Vidaza week. With the news of the donor, Beth has generally been in good spirits, and with the blood transfusion about a week ago, she’s been feeling pretty good as well. So with all of this going on, it’s likely she won’t be feeling so well this week.
