Bart skated across the Craters of the Moon this morning (icy roads for 45 miles or so) to St. Luke's Hospital MSTI in Twin Falls.
The Augmentin - Revlimid combination really got things moving south QUICKLY and I barely made it to a gas station bathroom. Then, I took another 1/2 Imodium. Imodium really DRIES my mouth out.
Had my blood drawn, but there was mix-up on what tests were ordered, so I had to WAIT for the Comprehensive Chem Panel. I was there 2 1/2 hours before the labs were back and RN Letia started my IV.
My cbc (complete blood count) was better than I thought it would be. White blood cell count was up to 3.5 (norms 4.5-11) from 1.9 on 30 Nov 2012. Hemoglobin was low, but good for me at 11 (norms 12-15); and my platelets were down to 87 (norms 140-440) from 108 on 30 Nov 2012.
My kidney function tests were NOT ALL normal this week, but close. Creatinine was 1.09 (norms 0.52-1.04); BUN normal at 14 (norms 7-17); BUN/Creatinine Ratio normal at 13 (norms 10-20); and GFR abnormal at 54 (norm is greater than 60).
