Notes:

04/18/08 – My white blood cell count doubled from yesterday to today. Almost half of those cells (290) are neutrophils. Those are the really good cells. If my neutrophils (ANC) gets higher than 500, I might be able to go home. My cell counts have rebounded at a very fast rate. Just the fact that my counts are going up at all means that Lindsey’s cells have successfully been transplanted into me and I am now producing her blood cells.
