Low white cell count...

We got a call from the on call Dr at the cancer treatment center asking how Mathew was... I told him that he is having breathing treatments as I fear he may be getting pneumonia.. He said the results from his blood test yesterday came back and the white cells were VERY LOW and if he got a temperture of 100.5f to 101f I should take him to the ER asap...
I think I've felt his forehead 324 times today ... lol
Touch wood, apart from being extremely tired there is no fever.. We think the chemo will be postponed this coming Monday. We see our Oncologist at 8:30am Monday so we will know more then.
It might be that he needs to go in for a blood transfusion and luckily we have a cousin who is willing to donate..(already a blood donor)
The rollercoaster ride goes on.. wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee... lol
No church for Mathew tomorrow, just a lazy day poor guy..
Will update more later....

goodness. I guess a low white blood cell count is a bad thing then?
