Inpatient Labs March 16 to March 20 2012

Note VDT-PACE running 3/16/2012 to 3/20/2012. My neutrophils have not taken the hit that is expected yet and my Absolute Neutrophil Count remains at 1.9 (norms 1.8-6.6).

My hemoglobin, although low at 9.4 (norms 12.1-16.3) isn't that bad. My platelet count is only 46 (norms 150-400) and they expect it to drop dramatically requiring platelet transfusion. My white blood cell count is holding at 2.1 (norms 4-11.1), but they expect this to tank too.
My Lactate Dehydrogenase (LDH) is improving at 111 (norms 98-192).
My Magnesium has been running a tad high at 2.2 (norms 1.3-2.1), but they have been giving me magnesium in my maintenance IV Fluids 3/16/2012 to 3/20/2012.
My phosphorus is normal at 3.1 (norms 2.7-4.5).
My uric acid is normal at 2.9 (norms 2.6-8.7).
