no alarms and no surprises. . . please
So yesterday Abacus' white blood cell count dropped. The Dr came and spoke to Danielle about it and was quite inconclusive about what they thought. So we had all these ideas of immune failure and bone marrow transplants - because these things can happen with down syndrome. I guess our threshold for accepting the worst has been set quite low lately. So we had another long wait for bloods to get back, which showed her white blood cells on the increase. Another doctor came by and said they were just monitoring her and they weren't too worried and that it can happen with new borns. they explained how white blood cells are really high when babies are first born and then drop rapidly. I just don't know how many more of these surprises we can take, lets see!
