    Newbie: I am looking for some help - please read

    Hi all:

    I am currently in the horrible 'waiting stage'.... My 4yr-old son (born 7-18-05) has gotten his bloodwork back... the levels are the following:

    WBC 5.9
    RBC 4.47
    Hemoglobin 13.1
    Hematrocrit 37.7
    MCV 84.4
    MCH 29.2
    MCHC 34.6
    RDW 13.5
    Platelet Count 186
    MPV 8.1
    Total Neutrophils % 4.3
    Total Lymphocytes % 88.4
    Monocytes % 2.3
    Eosinopohils % 4.2
    Basophils % 0.8
    Neutrophils, Absolute 254
    Lymphocytes, Absolute 5216
    Monocytes, Absolute 136
    Eosinophils, Absolute 248
    Basophils, Absolute 47

    I am very concerned with the low numbers in the absolute neutrophils and monocytes. All levels seem to be in the lower part even if in range.

    I am getting blood tested again tomorrow in the am. If anyone can help me out to understand these levels, I would appreciate it immensely.

    Thanks...

    Nikki
