I didn't realize that the Gran was the same as Neu's.  I thought the Gran was a sub-type of the Neutrophils.  If that is true, which I will look up tonight, then your ABS Gran is your ANC level which you calculated 2.4.  

These numbers become mind boggling sometimes.  It can become overwhelming.  And yes your numbers look great!

Had to look it up, no Neu% on CBC, according what I was just reading they are one in the same. Gran% vs Neu%
Still digging

Copied my CBC 4-25-2013. And uploaded it into my pictures. Please have a look. Still trying to wrap my head around this stuff...guess I should have stayed in school.

Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) is a measure of the number of neutrophil granulocytes[1] (also known as polymorphonuclear cells, PMN's, polys, granulocytes, segmented neutrophils or segs) present in the blood. Neutrophils are a type of white blood cell that fights against infection.
