Turning the corner . . .
WOOT WOOT!!! Phil appears to be turning a corner today. His fever has been under 101 since yesterday afternoon—it’s been in the 98-99 range since then. His blood work is improving, too. His platelet count today is 79, compared to 59 yesterday (normal range is 88-368). His neutrophils (the infection fighters) rose from 100 yesterday to 330 today. The benchmark to be released is no fever and a count of 500. Phil is incredibly fragile so we hope this trend continues.
Thank you all for your prayers and support!
