All My Values are Lower and So is My Energy – November 16 2012

Went to Lost Rivers Medical Center this morning and had a CBC (complete blood count) drawn to check my platelet count. My white blood count is lower at 2.4 (norms 4-11.2); hemoglobin lower at 10.5 (norms 12-16); and platelets low at 50 (norms 140-440). I wore my mask and and was glad I did since a lady came in and was coughing away.


With my platelets at 50, I’ll cut my injectable Fragmin dosage to 7,500 units tonight.
I don’t have a lot of get up and go – probably because my hemoglobin (oxygen carrying) is lower at 10.5. Had a nadir this this afternoon. Didn’t walk today, but I did walk Kemmer 0.44 miles last evening just before dark.
