    I have missed him too. I wonder if maybe he went somewhere for the holidays where they don’t have internet. Hope he comes back soon.

    I’ve noticed too that we haven’t heard from him and have missed him also and all his great info and comments. It’s not the same without him! Hopefully he is away for holidays as suggested and is doing fine.

    Hi All,
    Been in bed the last 11-12 days with a never-ending sinus infection and fluid in the lungs. Started on an antibotic and inhaler yesterday—plus lots of chicken noodle soup.
    Will be a few more days till I’m “normal”.
    Thanks for the concern

    Hi All,
    This sinus infection/fluid on the lungs is getting better very slowly. But the impact on my counts is more than strange.
    Normal platelet level for me is about 10,000. On 1/18/07 they were at 92,000.
    Normal WBC is around 1.0. On 1/18/07 WBC was 2.5. Easy to explain with the infection. Mostly in the neuts. They went from 1.1 to 2.2.
    HGB norm is around 11.7-11.9 and they went to 9.9.
    Had an Aranesp shot 1/18 and will be curious to see my numbers on 2/8.
    Almost looked like they got my sample mixed up with someone else.
    Have 2 more antibiotic pills to take. If I don’t feel much better at the end of the week, will set up an appointment with my internist. O yes my glucose has gone thru the roof with very low food intake, particularly carbs.
    If any of you see any signs of anything similar, get to your doc quickly. Don’t wait around.

    Neil,
    Strange things happened to my counts, too, when I went through resporitory infections between this last Thanksgiving to Christmas. The antibiotics also messed up my digestive system. Once things got better, I added high level of pribiotics to fix that. Hope you continue to improve. Not to put stress on you, but many need you posts.
