Chemo and platelets

Jackson is getting a platelet transfusion this morning. Platelets are the last thing to recover after chemo. To be honest, it is kind of nice that his platelets are low because that means he gets to stay home a little longer. However, the longer he stays home the more likely that he will be in the hospital on Christmas.

On another note: We found out today that there is a shortage of Thiotepa (one of Jackson's chemo drugs). The doctors said that they can't find any but that they are working on it. If they can't find the chemo drug our next round will be pushed off until they can find his chemo.

Thank you for taking time to comment. I read each and every comment to Jackson and they brighten his spirits. He loves that you are supporting him through reading his blog.
