We took Logan back for
his follow up appointment this afternoon. He had additional blood work
done today. The blood work results came back about the same as the
previous work. From this, the Dr. felt confident ruling out Leukemia.
Had it been Leukemia, the results would have shown dramatic degradation.
The tests from today showed no mutated or changed cells that would be
present with Leukemia. Definitely a positive.
The doctor is now
looking at three different possibilities:
Neutropenia - no known origination, have for life, weakened immune system,
more susceptible throughout life
- genetic, same as above
Syndrome - disease of pancreas in which it creates insufficient enzymes
affecting digestion of fats and nutrients, 98% also have chronic
The test results we
received today from the last visit ruled out the autoimmune form of
Neutropenia, in which your body creates antibodies to your own neutrophils
causing your body to destroy its own immunity. This was also a positive.
From today's lab work, there were two more tests that were sent off for
analysis. We should have those results back next week. These tests
should further aid in the diagnosis and next steps.
Thank you all for your
thoughts and prayers. They really have made a difference.
