Medical Mystery

The ultrasound today went well. The baby is measuring 7 weeks and the heart rate was in the 150s so I was very happy. All seemed well with the baby.

Everything is not as well with me, however. My natural killer cells came back elevated again despite having received the IV intralipids. Since this last blood test should have shown the full effect of the intralipids I was really expecting the natural killer cell activity to be back within the normal range. It's a bit of a mystery why they not only didn't go down but they went up. It makes me nervous. I had another blood draw today so the level's will be retested and if things are still elevated next week I'll receive another IV of the intralipids.
