The specialist from Cincinnati called today. They NEVER call. NEVER. I thought he would want to talk about t-cells. Nope, he pointed out that her Absolute Neutrophil Count (ANC) was low. Really low. Normal ANC is above 1.5, Fiona's was always over 2. Wednesday's ANC was .99. The plan for now is to stop her preventative antibiotic, wait a few days and test again. If it goes up we switch her antibiotic. If it doesn't go up we test for autoimmune problems. If she gets a fever we go to the pediatrician, and possibly get IV antibiotics for a few days. We are starting to feel stressed again.
