Just wanted to take the opportunity to tell a little of my story.
I have been ill pretty much since February of this year with several hospitalizations and a number of infections such as cellulitis, oral thrush, a picc infection, etc.
I've had a liver biopsy and 2 bone marrow biopsies in addition to exhaustive laboratory testing.
I currently have cbc's an average of 3 times a week, B12 injections weekly, folic acid daily and frequent transfusions.
(I'll include links to a few of my cbc results from the past month.)
My hematologist thinks I may have aplastic anemia due to my severely low blood counts and hypocellular bone marrow. I'll be going Thomas Jefferson in Philly on the 23rd to hopefully get a final diagnosis.

My blood counts for the last 30 days fall in the ranges below.

WBC 0.1 - 0.6
Hemaglobin 6.3 - 8.9
Platelets 5 -24


Looking forward to getting to know individuals with some of the same experiences.
