18 December- While the trend has been good news and blessings, today we hit a small bump in the road. This morning Kel received a phone call from her specialist's office explaining that her White Blood Cell count was elevated. This has been one of the key signs to watch out for since trouble started. As you can imagine Kel's emotions began to whirl. As she asked questions it seemed the nurse was unfamiliar with the details of her case which frustrated Kel making the emotions worse. The nurse tried to explain that it was no big deal and they would just test again next week. This was obvious since Kel's been tested every week for the last five. Kel followed this up with more calls to the other doctor and spoke again to the office which had called. It turns out that her levels are up a bit from last week but not high enough for serious concern. The nurse was just making an informative phone call not realizing the panic it may cause. Well we all breathed a sigh of relief but it is still a big big prayer request that the cell count go back down or at least stop climbing ASAP. Thanks for the continued support.
