Hi there. Good to know that your mother is in the ace of her health. A low rbc count could be due to mild anemia secondary to blood loss.  Among wbcs, an increase in neutrophils is due to an acute infection, gout, rheumatoid arthritis; trauma etc. and increase in lymphocytes can be due to chronic bacterial infection, infectious hepatitis, multiple myeloma a viral infection like infectious mononucleosis or recovery from a bacterial infection. This is with significant increase, mild increase in cells can be acceptable. Consult a physician for evaluation of any of these clinical scenarios if theres an increase. Take care.
