Oh T, I'm so sorry that you're having to deal with the scariness of the lab work. As a parent/grandparent I know how scary that it. As others have said, virus' and flu's can really throw blood work numbers off, so as hard as it is, try not to worry while waiting to have the bloodwork redone.

Hugs and pixie dust.

A bad flu will cause cause the body to skew the proportions of the different types of white blood cells from a normal profile to one that favours the kind of cells that fight viruses. It generally takes a couple of weeks for those cells to remove the virus and then the white blood cells will live out their normal life span and be replaced by the normal white blood cell profile.

Please take care of yourself and Stella and try not to stress out for the next couple of weeks. As others have already said, it's much, much, much more likely that her blood work is due to the virus and not something more serious.

Just catching up here and sending prayers and pixie dust and hugs to you and Stella. I hope the time between this set of lab results and the new ones goes quickly, and that the next set of results are fine. As sick as Stella was, it would be no wonder that messed up the results. Try not to worry too much in the meantime, which is far easier said than done.

Thinking of you and Stella. I bet everything will normalize once she knocks out the virus. It's been a tough winter for illness. ((hugs))

Praying for you and Stella nothing is scarier then hearing news like that... **Hugs** You've had a rough couple of weeks. It will get better!

Big Hugs for Stella. She is one of my favorites ever since we spent time together on Castaway Cay.

One thing I have learned about lab tests is to compare them to your own normal. The "normal" that you are seeing are guidelines. Once Stella is feeling better getting a new blood test will help establish or compare to her established personal normal.

Sending good thoughts and lots of pixie dust.
