Stable is good right?

Today Jim had an appointment downtown at the transplant clinic to check up on his white blood cell count and the status of his CMV. This is the second lab draw with a negative CMV status which is good however slightly confusing because I was under the impression that once someone is CMV + that they are always CMV+, but it is a matter of the amount. But I will take the -CMV and just be happy in my ignorance. His white blood cell count remains low however stable so the doctors do not seem terribly concerned. He is now showing a 3.6 WBC where normal is 4.0-11.0. On another front Jim's red blood cell count is the highest I have ever seen. Creatinine and pancreatic enzymes are also stable, as well as his glucose.

He has an appointment for another lab draw in two weeks with phone follow up, and pending results his next in clinic appointment is in 4 weeks.

Prayer Requests: labs remain stable, white blood cell count continues to rise, thanks for stable results today

Bible Verse: : "Give thanks for the Lord for He is good and His mercy endures forever. " Psalms 107:1
