At the hospital
I wanted to take a couple of minutes and give you an update. As I write we are on the 9th floor at MD Anderson. James woke up today and was irritable and seemed to have more bruising. He also had blood blisters in his mouth. After talking with his doctor we decided to come in and check his counts. He also had an episode of throwing up but i checked his temperature and he was fever free. We arrived at MDA at 10:30 and they got his blood. His blood revealed that his platelet count was 3000 again and his hemoglobin had dropped. So now we are waiting for a transfusion. Hopefully we will be getting home around early evening but as we have learned so many times before-don't count on it! We would appreciate your prayers as James goes through another transfusion-that all things so smooth and he would have no reaction. Thank you!
