White Blood Cells

This is what I’ve been praying for the past few days.

White Blood Cells.

White blood cells, or leukocytes (also spelled “leucocytes”; from the Greek word leuko- meaning “white”), are cells of the immune system involved in defending the body against both infectious disease and foreign materials. Five[1] different and diverse types of leukocytes exist, but they are all produced and derived from a multipotent cell in the bone marrow known as a hematopoietic stem cell. They live for about three to four days in the average human body. Leukocytes are found throughout the body, including the blood and lymphatic system.[2]

Mattie’s count should be 7-10… it is currently .6 (that’s point six)

The medical team suspects that his white blood cells may have been depleted from some of the medications he was on during his illness. All of those medications have been stopped, so we now wait and watch for that number to increase.

  1. White blood cells come forth in Mattie’s body in the proper amount in the Mighty Name of Jesus!! Praying and helping to hold your hands up from afar. Love to all and kiss Mattie’s sweet head for me!!

  2. I often think of your baby and your family all through the day and night and I know the Lord is prompting me to pray for you all. So I do.
