Almost perfect with the following exceptions: Lymphocyte % ( Coulter )(LYMPH%) 15.7 (Low), Normal range: 20.0-50.0% Steroids can cause an abnormal decrease in the lymphocyte count. (Reference Medfriendly.com) Eosinophil % ( Coulter )( EOS %) 11.5 (High), Normal range: .0-4.0% (see next line) Absolute Eosinophil Count ( EOS #) 0.9 k/mm3 (High), Normal range: 0.0-0.4, Increased eosinophil count indicates certain leukemia, allergic reactions, parasitic infections and brucellosis (Reference Aarogya.com)
Increased steroid dose to 8mg every other day. Hopefully, I'll have a little more energy, a little less GVHD symptoms, less frequent BM's (currently 3-4 times per day) and I'll feel a little better again.
My tacrolimus level was a little high. So now, I'm taking one less pill per day.
Please pray for John. He has an autologous bone marrow transplant scheduled for next Wednesday.
