Just wanted to drop a note that I will not be posting any projects for a few days. My daughter is in the hospital and we are not sure how much longer she will be in there. Hopefully she will get to come home tomorrow. :)
She has Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) Here is a link if you want to know more about it:
Her platelets count was down to 1000 yesterday. Normal is about 1.5 million. Her blood wasn't coagulating and she has bruising and petechiae all over her body. She feels fine, just tired and she needs to be monitored for bleeding. She had this when she was 3, she is now 20.
Today her counts were up to 6000. :) While good, not sufficient enough. She just got off the IV's and they will monitor progress without the steroids and immune globulin to see if it is still progressing upwards. We should know more tomorrow.
