Tripp has ran a low white count for quite sometimes. Doctor says sometimes that is normal with Tegretol. His tegretol is at 11.7 down from 13.8 and his depokate is 117 up a bit but he is doing okay. His liver and pancrese levels are just fine.

Do you run low white count??

Good to hear Teg levels dropped.

Re: Travis

I now have last test and current. Looks like he did a Kidney as well last time; so last years has more data on it compared to this years...

Not sure what you know on the liver and Kidney tests... but here it goes:

SGOT was within range, but it nearly doubled since last time.
SGPT rose by 20 points (above range, slightly high)
Alk Phos lessened since last time
Total BLIL remained the same
as did Direct and Indirect BLIL
Total Protine was within parameters, but less than before.
Albumin lessen slightly but not low within the parameters.

so it's good to know that for the most part (except for one) I came out on the good side. so I don't have to worry now. As well I'm glad the doc ordered one last year and not the one I was thinking of from 4 years back.

Now I'm starting to feel like a parent I think (grin). I entered a collum with the current test results and the priors to have them side by side and the ranges NeXT to them so I didn't need to keep pulling out the sheets.

One less thing to worry about.
