[MOL] blood counts

My sister has SCLC and has had 3 days of chemo, today started chemo and 
radiation twice daily. Tomorrow is supposed to be radiation twice and 7 hours 
of chemo however they came in right before her second radiation and said you 
can't have radiation, your counts are too low, .08. Is this normal, she is 
upset that she couldn't have the radiation and now has to have blood work 
stat in the morning to see if she can continue treatment? We don't really 
understand why they can't do the radiation with the low blood counts. Can 
anyone explain. Thanks very much. Kathie M.
