What would you like to know? I am fun, but crazy. I have a most perfect husband, and 2 cats named Samson and Delilah. We are presently working on adopting a little girl from China and have a separate blog for that. I am a Christian and am working on a better relationship with him. I live in the Atlanta area and love sharing stories with people. I am also a pediatric nurse and I love it! I love to talk and meet new people and I love Disney Cruising

Prayer Request

Having done my physical for the adoption, thing my dr just called and said that after 2 blood tests, my white blood cell count is a bit elevated..Its down from last time, but still on the hight end.It was 13, now 11. Not sure whats up, but she wants me to see a hematologist.
Pray its nothing serious..

Being the nurse I am, I have googled everything and it could just be an infection or inflammation. My first thought was leukemia, but my numbers would have been much higher and not have decreased...

Anyway, it will be consuming my mind until then..

Amy, I have had a lot of practice with fretting about high white blood cell counts.

My white blood cell count is now hovering around 15-16000. I also have a few other symptoms (namely fatigue), but I've been through all the tests and specialists, and they haven't found what's causing it.

As I'm sure you've already found, a 13000 WBC count can be caused by anything from allergies, a cold, or just high levels of stress. If it's back down to 11000 or less, and you don't have any other symptoms, I wouldn't worry about it. And unless you have a history of it, I wouldn't allow a hemoc to do a bone marrow biopsy. Too painful for my taste.

Here's hoping that you go to the hemoc...and they find a normal WBC count. Please contact me if you have any questions. And no, I'm not a doctor...just someone who's been visiting doctors non-stop for about the past 6 years.

Hey sis, you are in my prayers as always. This is the first time that I have had a chance to log in and check it out since the new job, plus I lost all my favorites. Keep us updated and I will try to call you tomorrow after church.
