Heart is heavy

Thank you to all of you who have offered prayers and support for our grandson, either personally or through a posted comment.    Thank you.

This evening  my heart is heavy.  The diagnosis is in:  aplasticl anemia.  It’s quite rare – a condition in which the bone marrow is no longer producing  the red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets needed to keep the body functioning.  All of our dear grandson’s blood counts have essentially tanked:   he has had platelet transfusions to bring his levels to a point where the risk of a bad bleed is minimized, and blood transfusions to get his haemaglobin levels up – the latter now apparently giving him a  little energy and touch of colour.

We await news of the next steps.

All of this is happening as our daughter and family are in the midst of a rather complicated move.  They just moved from a rental home in the south last week.  Their home in the midwest was sold about two weeks ago and the movers are coming in to pack up the house tomorrow.  They are supposed to be in Ohio by about mid June but don’t yet have a house to move to.

Difficult difficult times.  So many prayers needed.  Please keep the prayers going.

    I don’t know where my mind was when I posted this. The diagnosis is aplastic anemia NOT atypical anemia. I have no idea where I drummed up the latter, or if perhaps the expert gremlins in the bowels of the computer decided to fix up my spelling? No matter. It is APLASTIC anemia.
