Platelets 198K

We had to take David to hematology today for a CBC to check his platelets. No problem except he immediately knew what was going on and put up a big fit. The tech was great and only poked him once. The platelets are 198K. They want his platelets to stay above 80K for another 4 weeks to ensure no more brain bleed. He looks like a beautiful normal child, with no bruises or petechiae. We'll go back on Friday for another blood draw.

We have a BMT consultation on Thursday. We have a lot of questions but we are still going forward with the BMT.

Please pray for God to intervene and provide the best donor possible. Thank you!
