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.

  1. It's tough when you don't have any 'spizerinktom' (no jazz) so I'm intending you are getting some new spark and feeling like walking with Kemmer again.
