You have 2 choices here based on where the all caps "OR" is placed:

Comprehensive metabolic panel (80053) Blood count, complete (CBC), automated and automated differential WBC count (85025 or 85027 and 85004)

OR

Blood count, complete (CBC), automated (85027) and appropriate manual differential WBC count (85007 or 85009) Thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) (84443)

The TSH is only included in the second choice. So choice 1 is comprehensive metabolic panel with CBC and WBC and choice 2 is CBC with WBC and TSH.
