Wednesday July 14, 2010 - Blood Work

We went to LPCH today and here are Barry's lab results:

WBC: 3.6
Hemoglobin: 8.4
Platelet: 7
NEUT, ABS: 1.4

As you can see, Barry's platelets are very low at 7 (or 7000). He had to get a transfusion of platelets this morning after the results of the blood tests came in. He usually needs a transfusion of platelets once every 7 days. You can physically tell that he needs platelets when you can see the blood vessels in his eyes start to bleed.
