Got Platelets and Two Bags of Blood

Well, Wednesday was an all day event starting at 9:30 am. Marco had an appointment for lab work to see if his platelets were low and had a tentative appointment for a blood transfusion if needed.
By 11:30 they called him in for the results of his blood test which showed that this platelets were extremely low from a 150 ,his were at a 9 and his red blood count was low as well.

Marco says dead man walking...... so we were like now what.... so the nurse says ok 1 bag of platelets and 2 bags of blood..... you will be here for a while.

Marco slept thru all the transfusions on and off. He said he didn't feel any different from when he went in. So we left City of Hope at about 5:30pm and straight to the Hat for a burger.

He has been doing we are packing to go back to COH on Monday for his final chemo round and hoping the chemo is still doing it's job.

Well, platelets and 2 sides of blood doesn't sound like the most appealing of orders but you gotta do what you gotta do right?
That's made you a very good looking dead man walking compared to most of the dead men I've seen! ;)

Hang in there marco. We are thinking about you all the time.

And isn't it great how good food can make things a little better? I heard you have taken my throne as the costillita in green chile sauce king. And that marie has been cooking the greatest hits - tostadas, pato-chicken hehe...wish I was there! Love you guys!
