Thursday +220 (Morning)

Just a quick note to update Jackie's CBC counts. Her tests today show improvement in most areas. Her WBC count has increased to 3.0 with an ANC level of .9 (900). This means she is no longer neutropenic. Her RBC (Hgl) count has improved to 11.7 which accounts for her increase in energy. Her platelets have declined to 131 which is on the low end of normal but not bad.

For anyone reading this who is dealing with CLL (or any cancer) is strongly recommend the latest article written by Chaya Venkat at about T cells and Tregs. This is a new and very promising area of cancer research. I also urge everyone to support the CLLtopics organization with a donation. I made my second donation to them today.

Until Later....

Bruce and Jackie
