I have sexy blood

If, that is, by sexy I mean completely and totally f'd up. I've bullet noted the rest of this message for ease of read:

• Was not able to see a doctor today due to severe breakdown of communication. However, Dr Hernried (the head of the program) took a look at my labs and called me as I was driving back to SF

• Platelet levels are at 34, higher than last week but still low enough to freak out Dr. H

• My glucose level is very very low and has been low for the past few months. YAY! I have just been given a green light to consume even more calories in hopes of bringing that level up! BOO! I'm hypoglycemic! The funny part? Dr H wanted me to get a glucose meter, but then quickly nixed the idea because he doesn't want me sticking my finger. YOu know, platelets and all.

• Dr H, in his amazingness, found a hematologist in my area, not too far from my apartment, who will gladly see me next week as to figure out what the hell is going on re: platelets and glucose.

• This hematologist? It turns out he and Dr H trained together back at UCD. The only reason Dr H called him was because he was the only hematologist in my zipcode.

• In short: I am asymptomatic re: platelets and glucose. Still not hemmorhaging, still not passing out, depsite the fact that my labs say that not only should I be squirting blood all over the place, but I should also probably be in a coma, or something. So who the hell knows.
