My platelet count is down to 40 (norms 140-440). They called Dr. Padavanija's office at St. Luke's Hospital, Twin Falls, Idaho. RN Ann called me and we reviewed how I should proceed with my medications in light of my platelet count:
Platelet Count Greater Than 50 - Take Fragmin 15,000 units
Platelet Count Less Than 50 - Take Fragmin 7,500 units
Platelet Count Less Than 30 - Hold Fragmin and Revlimid
The rest of my CBC wasn't too bad. My white blood cell count is low at 3.1 (norms 4-11.2) and hemoglobin is low at 10.4 (norms 12-16)
Darkness fell and I decided Kemmer needed a walk after all that waiting today. We just walked the neighborhood for 0.44 miles. Lots of mule deer wandering around at that time of the evening, but Kemmer is so good not to chase them!
My wonderful neighbor, Pam Denning Lords replaced the broken zipper on my favorite down jacket and delivered it to me today! You can't see the zipper too well in the photo below - but, it is awesome!! THANK YOU PAM !!!
