Questions from a newbie

Hi!
I am diagnosed with MS, since 2002. My neuro always does routine bloodwork every 6 months due to the heavy-duty meds I am on (Tysabri) and I happened to get a copy last week when i was there. Here are the results I am somewhat concerned about. Neutrophils 33 (normal is 40-74%) Lymphs 47 (normal is 14-46%) Eos 9 9Normal is 0-7) Neutrophils (Absolute) 1.7 Normal is (1.8-7.8x10Ex3/uL)

My WBC is 5.3, normal 4.0-10.5x10E3/uL, RBC is 3.81 normal is 3.80-5.10, Hemoglobin11.9, normal is 11.5-15. so I am just squeaking by on those, Hematocrit 33.4 normal is 34.0-44.0.

I am a little uneasy about this because my dad died of lymphoma in 2003, and I just watched my father in law pass away 1 month ago from AML. His first sign was slowly progressing neutropenia.

Any insight would be appreciated!
Thanks,
nelsonhallgal
