Gavin: High drama, low bloods.

A hectic day saw Sonny at the Witt having platelets in the morning and then back to school for an hour doing a show and tell (three guesses what that was about). After that, he had to race back to the hospital to run some different tests on his blood as his own body appears to be eating up his platelets which is not good.
More bloods are ordered for tomorrow for another transfusion as his HB has also dropped despite a transfusion on Friday.
It's a worrying time. The delight of him being tentatively back at school is kept in check while they try to find out what's behind another very serious issue. There is no reason why his bloods should be dropping so rapidly after transfusion. We continue to hold our breath, whilst smiling.
