New immune discovery: might fix us one day

I’ve always said I feel like my immune system is sleeping on the job, and it looks like researchers have figured out a link that hasn’t been previously explored in my case.

From the sounds of the article (translated: what I could understand…limited :(, researchers recently discovered that monocytes play a previously unknown important role telling the neutrophils where to go.

This would explain things like, why I had the sliver in my foot and no redness or swollen, etc etc etc.

And this might would also explain why when I got the GSf shot, it raised my neutrophils instantly–

The problem has never been with the neutrophils or making neutrophils,

The problem is who is supposed to tell the neutrophils to go to work.

That’s why most vaccines work–an injection tells the body to make them–but when an invader is present, it’s not really sure where it’s supposed to go or what to do–it’s not sure.

But a needle stick into the muscle, that’s pretty direct contact.

I actually think the problem is much more complicated than that, but I think this article is *extremely* promising for Noah and I–

It’s the closest explanation I’ve seen to fit our clinical picture.

Some kind of rare immune deficiency, yet to be determined. A lifetime of infections without an elevated white cell blood or fever. Very grateful to be alive, very thankful for the friends who’ve supported me and for access to literally millions of dollars worth of medical care. I’m not the bubble child, I’m somewhere in between.
