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 well...now 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!
