So I got word from my doctor about my test results:

  • Elevated white blood cell count, consistent with the chronic sinus infection with which I have been diagnosed
  • Some other blood count thingie that they always see in people who have severe allergies-- again, not surprising seeing that the skin test revealed that I am allergic to just about everything they test for
  • And a high platelet count-- my doctor will call me tomorrow to discuss if this is "clinically significant"
High platelets show up if you are simply sick, right?

Yeah, I'm nervous. And tired and discouraged. I wish the bath tub at my place was less wimpy because a hot hot hot bath tonight would really be nice.

P.S.  By the way, did I say that I am really glad I went to the specialist anyway even though my PCP dismissed all of my symptoms and just told me to sleep and take tylenol?

EDIT:  Tonight it is Take Out Taxi bringing Tom Yum soup to my door.  quality time with Parvati and Kali.  Books and movies.  No whimpering....
