Super low platelets today
The MIBG has done what CHOP said it would: Eden’s platelets have reached the dangerously low point. Her platelets were 10 today, down from 24 last Thursday. Dr. Nick told Lisa that Eden was NOT allowed to go to school tomorrow. Who knows how long it will be before she can get there again.
She had a transfusion today, but as of about 9:15 PM was still “seeping” (bleeding) from her port where she was accessed earlier. Lisa has been in contact with the on-call fellow from J5 and has instructions of what to do to get it to stop and if that doesn’t work then they’ll head to Children’s for another platelet transfusion.
Please pray for Eden; she REALLY needs all of the prayer that we can send up for her to get through the side effects of the MIBG treatment. Please keep Christi Thomas and her family high on your prayer lists too. They’re having a very difficult time.
