GCSF to the Rescue

March 31st, 2005 - 1:22am by Mom

Well today was a much better day!! Thankfully Kevin didn't have any more bleeds last night and didn't need the transfusion today. His lab results came back showing the platelets at 83 with the normal being less than 4000. Evidently it isn't that abnormal for them to be this low when receiving chemo, and Kevin's oncologist wanted to try to bring them up with the GCSF first. After receiving one injection at noon today, Kevin is already feeling a lot better. He will continue taking the injections through the w/e, and labs will be drawn again on Monday. Hopefully the little beasties will stay elevated until then!
