I didn't realize that low white blood cell counts would be so low so soon. The low end of the range of a normal white blood cell count is 4. Yesterday's blood work showed Maura's as being 0.8. A day after chemo they gave her a shot that is supposed to stimulate the production of white blood cells in her bone marrow. I hope it kicks in soon. Because of that, please hold off on your visits until the counts are back up. You can still call and talk to her.
