more tests

Fiona had labs drawn today for a complete blood count (cbc) with diff. That test will show what her blood counts are, but most importantly it shows what her specific white blood cell counts are. We are most concerned with neutrophils and lymphocytes. Lymphocytes are t-cells, B cells, and natural killer cells. If her levels from last week are the same or lower she is more likely to develop infections. We should have results back tomorrow.
