A trip to the ER on Wednesday night with fever of 101.7. My wbc was 0.5. I have been in lock down (reverse isolation) ever since. Have gotten neutrogen x 3, antibiotics, iv zofran, diflucan (thrush), valtrex (to ward off shingles - so far so good), etc. Also blood transfusion yesterday. Finally feeling better today and hoping they may let me leave if all my cultures are negative. Yesterday's wbc 0.8 but no neutrophils yet. Don't expect rapid improvement there.
Miss you all and think happy thoughts that maybe I'll get home today!
