blood draw yesterday

...but not for PSA.  That will be next month.  Yesterday the blood draw was a comprehensive metabolic panel, cholesterol, etc.  I expect my cholesterol numbers to be excellent again, given the Pravastatin and weight loss, and I'm curious about what my white blood cell count will be.  It was low last time, and my doctor was concerned. Specifically, my neutrophil count was low. But since I wasn't having trouble fighting off infections, he didn't refer me to a hematologist.  I still am very healthy in that regard--no problem with infections of any kind.
