I've been away for awhile (though popping in here and there) since I started a part time job. Luckily J comes w me. But it's quite interesting trying to work with a babe running around my office.
Anyhow! Routine bloodwork showed J has neutropenia. I received this info in a vm (while my dr was away) and needless to say I panicked. Dr google will do that. I've since talked with his ped and we have a wait and see plan of action. Which, knowing the insane germaphobic worry wort I already am is, needless to say, stressful.
Wondering if any other moms are familiar with this? My heart breaks and my stomach is sickened thinking about the possibilities but I'm trying to stay positive and take it one day at a time.
His wbc was 5,5 (which is mildly low) and his neutrophil count was around 850. The normal is 1500 and severe neutropenia is 500 and under.
We have a repeat blood draw (
) on Wednesday. Prayers it goes up! Hopefully it was a fluke...or he was fighting something at the time (although he seemed healthy...)
Thanks for reading, just needed to get it out and hopefully connect with anyone who's even heard if this!
