Aidan had his second round of chemo on Wednesday, it went really well. Then Yesterday was his spinal tap. All I can say is that it sucked! They gave Aidan a numbing shot but it was still no fun. All in all, he has been doing well. He needs to take breaks sometimes when he gets dizzy or tired. He seems to be eating and sleeping alright. Aidan also had his first small bloody nose Friday morning, with leukemia, this is a sign that his platelets are low. Low platelets will also cause him to bruise easier and if he gets cut he will bleed more. Low platelets mean his blood will not clot like it should. In a normal child the platelet count is 150,000; Aidan’s is 40,000.
Thursday is his next round of chemo. There will be no shoots thank goodness.
