Platelets. Despite the very new (FDA approved only as of late August) producemoreplatelets injections, Maura's platelets are once again down to transfusion level. So, after being here until about 11:00 last night for red blood cells, we are once again awaiting a transfusion of a different blood product. It's worth it. We don't want her to bleed to death. She has no symptoms, but her level is 8 (normal is at least 140), so she needs to be here. Pray for the platelet drug to kick in over the next few days and for her levels to come back up on their own so chemo won't be delayed again.
