The key number we watch is the blasts count. This number is the amount of abnormal cells counted in a random sample of 100 white blood cells in his blood. What has been concerning over the past few weeks was the numbers were not coming down as they should. When he was admitted it was in the 40s and even last week it was as high as 60.
Finally we have seen the numbers come down! Yesterday it was 11 and today it was 10. We are so thankful to hear this good news.
