Everything was going fine and I was feeling good and then I got a phone call from my doctor's office. My blood test showed that I have an elevated white cell blood count. OK? What does that mean? Well, I guess that they don't know and they told me to go see a hematologist. Since they didn't give any reference to any, I searched the internet for local hematologists. I was surprised to find a lot of them around here so picked one that was easy to get to. The one I picked is just off the interstate. Shouldn't be a problem getting there.
Now I have it figured out that they probably think that I have some kind of cancer. My wife and I did some research and found a lot of causes but the largest percentage was cancer somewhere or an infection. I opt for the infection. We will see in a couple of weeks when I go to hematologist.
I thought that white blood cells were a good thing but like everything else, too much of a good thing can also be bad. I take micornized beta glucan to ramp up my immune system. Maybe I ramped it up too much (grin). Nah, I don't think that is possible. Now, you all have a great day today, you hear?
PS. I almost forgot, the doc also says that my thyroid is not working as good as it should and I am to start on thyroid pills. He wanted to give me Synthroid but I told him I would only take the natural stuff, so he changed it to Armour.
