Chemo #2 a NO-GO {Silly Platelets}

SO--Mom was all ready to be given her second round of Chemotherapy today, but when she got there and they measured her blood levels, her platelet count was too low. So instead of doing that today, she got to spend the whole day getting another blood transfusion. Lucky her.

After talking to the specialists, it sounds like this happens occasionally for some people and is not something to be too concerned about.

And though this throws the chemo schedule off a bit, she's in pretty good spirits and is grateful for a bonus week before she has to go another round in the ring.

#2 Chemo Treatment is rescheduled for Tuesday, May 11th. Thanks for the prayers and support. We'll need them again next week as well. In the meantime, pray for her platelet levels to rise!
