Re: [MOL] Mol question from chris



What is he being treated for?  My Dad has leukemia and has been in the
Hospital for over a month, so all of his chemo was done as an in-patient.  I
have lost count on how many platelets he was given, it seems like every
couple days or so.  He went through 5 days of chemo, mon-fri.  they gave him
platelets before and at the end, for sure.  ON Friday they had to give him 3
pints of blood.  He had turned yellow midweek.  That helped and he has had
both platelets and reg. blood off and on even since the treatment 2 1/2
weeks ago.  I know this probably hasn't helped any, but they told us that
this was normal?!  (of course I have many questions on "normal"!)  Hope I
helped some!!
God Bless!!
