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