Checking neutrophil count (Chemo #6)

Getting my blood drawn before chemo, checking for the neutrophil (White blood cell) count.

When you have Hodgkin's Lymphoma (like me) that has spread to the bone marrow, it's imperative that your white blood cells stay at a normal level. If these numbers dropped, they would leave me susceptible to all sorts of infections. Fortunately, my numbers are good!
