I picked up my blood tests today, and the nurse told me that everything was within normal range.  My CRP was negative, ESR was 5, Hematocrit was 44%, and WBC was 9,700.  I am a little concerned about the WBC, isn't it a little high?  Of course I am on Entocort now which is a steroid, and my doctor told me last time that steroids increase the WBC a little bit.  Have you heard of that?
I have a doctor's appt. on Thursday, but I would love your input, so that I don't worry too much.
