Robbie had bloodwork today and due to low blood counts, he will need daily bloodwork. His white blood count and platlets have really dropped. He bleeds very easily.
His numbers are expected to keep dropping the next few days. The scary part is how low and what he will need until they start to rebound. We have to basically isolate him until his numbers improve. Any infection is an emergency. If they drop below a certain point, he will need transfusions. I hate this.
We appreciate your prayers.
Robbie is running a slight fever tonight. We will check on him in the night. We are hoping to avoid the ER. It is a sign that his blood counts are dropping. This is a few days sooner than expected, so hopefully it will drop back to normal over night.
I realize that I don’t have any of the after hours phone numbers or current protocol. Will find out tomorrow!
Robbie slept most of the day again today. We did take him out for a short shopping trip, but after 20 minutes he was ready to leave and go back to sleep. His mouth is starting to bother him, so we’ve started to take his temperature, since it is a sign his blood counts are dropping.
He had a good evening playing on his computer.
