2nd Platelet Cocktail
5am Blood Draw......and we wait to hear what the nurse will tell us before she leaves her shift. The verdict is in your platelets are low and you will be needing another platelet transfusion this morning ........well not something you want to hear so early in the morning or at any other time but its got to get done.
So here we are at 10:50 in the morning looking at a nurse starting to prep Marco for platelet transfusion so here we go round two of platelets, I told Marco he may have to have a serious talk with his own platelets(army) to start to work so we can go home and see the kids and maybe be home to ring in the new year. Well, we will see if that will be possible.
Doctor came in today and saw Marco, they found out what the bug was so now the pharmacy lab techs will be able to find the right meds to give him. So we may be here a couple of more days before we go home, not sure.
Attached is a picture of the platelets that are going into Marco
's body to help him fight off the infection.
We'll keep you posted.........
