Little sad today. :(
Today is monday. Every monday , wednesday and Friday I have to take Regina to CHLA for labs.
I took her there today. Nurses drew her blood, shanged her picc line dressing, made us wait for an hour for labs. After we got lab resluts we were told that Reginas platelets are running low. :( they want her to have at least 50 000 , but she was on 41 000 mark. So nurse called to blood/platelets bank to get Reginas platelets . Afterwhile nurse comes to me and tells us bad news. BLOOD bANK IS EMPTY. NO PLATELETS, NO BLOOD :(::(:( E M P T Y :(:(:( So I asked her what should we do.
She called Dr Dhall and Dr Dhall told us to go home, since everything else on her labs looks great ( not sure what ANC was , but white cells and red cells had improved over weekend). We have to go back on wednesday for more labs, and see if her platelets recovered itself.
NO ALL OF YOU- go donate your platelets and blood to CHLA. ALL kids ( Regina included ) need your help :).
