Note: DO NOT GOOGLE LOW WHITE BLOOD CELLS (or any other blood test result until you have all of the facts ma'am)
Yesterday Tyrone got his blood test results back from the doctor. They said everything was fine but that he had a very low white blood cell count and that they would like him to come back in on Friday.
FRIDAY!! Don't these people know that Google is out there for hypercondriacs and worry warts alike to further their obsessive compulsion of making their ulcers worse? "Wait a week. It's not a big deal." They either don't understand this or don't care what kind of an effect this may have on their patients when they give them a test result like that. So, of course the first thing I did when I received the fatal text message from Tyrone was Google it. After doing so I sort of sat in my car and then decided to respond carefully. I can only imagine what was going through his mind. Frightening words like CANCER, LEUKEMIA, HIV (umm, not too worried about this one), and CONGENITAL DISORDERS pop up.
On the less traumatic side but still not-so-fun side it could be a hyperthyroid or more commonly anemia, which is apparently more common in African Americans (according to Tyrone's chiropractor).
In the meantime I am going to stay away from Google as if it's gonorrhea.
