As it Happens

Live from the Virginia Crosson K. Cancer Center.

Real time sharing through Twitter and Facebook are de rigueur for the hipsters today. I prefer to use my blog.

This instant connectivity offers up an unvarnished, unfiltered, direct communal experience with no commentary, no spin, no insights, no imaginings.

Happening at a laptop near you.

Taking the electron machine out of the loop my BP was 120/82 which is great. Much better than it has been. The RN took it about four minutes ago the old fashion way, pumping up the cuff, and listening for the change in the sounds of my pulse with her stethoscope.

So why the terrible headache last night - clearly not from my BP being sky high. I should know better than to scare myself like that. More likely it was a skipped meal and a busy day with too little sleep the night before.

Now I am waiting for my all important CBC and platelet count. The results should arrive any minute.

The metabolic panel, uric acid, and trough cyclosporin level won't be known for a day or two.

And the answer is.........


WBC 6.o
RBC 4.27
Platelets 309

Wonderfully normal. Shared while the ink from the printed report is still wet.

How real and immediate is that.
