Monday morning I took Erin to the Lab here at our hospital and had a CBC (complete blood count) done and then they looked at her blood under the microscope. This is what we would do at Primary Children's but we are going to start doing it here because it's so much simpler to do it closer to home.
I was completely nervous all day with so much worry in my mind and heart. But, I got the lab results and breathed a huge sigh of relief. She is pretty healthy!
White blood count 8.6 (normal 6.0-17.0)
Red Blood count 4.77 (normal 3.90-5.30)
Hematocrit 41.7 (normal 34.0-40.0)
Platelets 274 (normal 150-400)
I am grateful that I had her checked out and that she healthy. Her next scheduled blood check is in one month.
