Another call from Cincinnati

They are calling more than I like lately. Fiona's helper t-cells are down to 136. A normal range would be 500-2400. The only difference between her and someone with AIDS is that her condition isn't caused by a virus. It's caused by a defective immune system. Her white cells are up, which could signal an infection. She's starting her preventative antibiotic tonight, which will lower her neutrophils again. She's also metabolizing her IGG faster. I'm glad they increased her dose.
