you need to realize that everyone have different standards of "normal"

i usually go with
WBC (white cells normal suppose to be > 3),
ANC (absolute neutrophil normal suppose to be > 1.2)
Hemogobin (red cells normal suppose to be > 11)

that's all i pay attention to.

The term usually used, rather than "normal", is reference range. This is simply the range of values tested for people in general. This range of numbers should be shown on your blood tests. Your doctor should point these out to you, or you can request a copy of the tests. Just because a particular test is outside the reference range, is not necessarily a reason to get alarmed. Talk to the doc about any of the tests about which you have questions.

If you want to know more about the tests, you can go to a site for lab testing companies(Labcorp, Qwest Diagnostics, etc.) for more information.
