Olivia's doctors called today. Her virus is yet again undetectable, must have been just a blip the last time they ran the tests. BUT, her neutrophil count was low three months ago and is low again, plus now her triglicerides (sp?) are up. Next time we go in they will do a fasting test on her tri... levels. The neutrophils they will "just watch." Lovely. If she gets sick at all we are to call. Looking up low neutrophil counts (neutropenia) is not fun, I shouldn't have even googled it. Mostly cancer patients, low immune levels, shouldn't be around groups, or people who are sick, etc. Yuck. I hope it changes soon. I want my healthy Olivia back. In addition, today and Sunday were quite rough for her. Rough like we haven't seen in quite a while. She's had a lot of homework, has been behind some in that, and hasn't had much extra time. Place on top of that being tired, maybe feeling run down from her lower levels????, and we've had some doozy fits. Luckily she has seen that she won't "win", that mom is calm and in control, and that she will have to get through it. But it's so not fun during! :) Praying for better health, better attitude, and better responsibility with her work. All in good time...
