Each day, the nurse draws blood between midnight and 4:00 AM so that the doctors have the day's counts by the time they do rounds in the morning.

I suspected... Today is the first day I jumped out of bed at 5:30 AM and asked for a copy of Ryan's labs. I was pretty sure I would see some numbers.

A Neutrophil count is the first sign of engraftment. Ever since chemo destroyed his bone marrow, the daily labs have been displaying "NO DATA".

But today......

(Attached are yesterday's labs next to today's.)
