Quick update on The Princess

We met with the hematologist today and her platelets were down to 2000 when they ran her blood work today.

We are choosing to treat her with the IVIG infusion. We are scheduled to go in tomorrow at 9am and will be there all day. This treatment will hopefully last 2-4 weeks. It has an 80% success rate of helping raise the platelet count. After it "wears" off, we can choose to wait, or to do another treatment.

There are some side effects that could happen as well. You can read more about the infusion HERE

I will update as I can tomorrow. I am completely wiped out and emotionally drained. Please pray that this treatments helps raise her platelets to a safer level and that she does not have any side effects.
