Smile Hang in there!

I finished my rabbit ATG last week and got through it relatively unscathed, but recent blood test shows platelets down to 19 so have to go in to clinic tomorrow, at first I burst into tears thinking it hasn't worked, but then remembered that we are all different, and sometimes it takes a while for the marrow to kick in and not to be so hard on myself. It is difficult (I am an occupational therapist) trying to be positive, but we are all unique individuals and as such will respond differently too. ATG takes a while to leave the system and it does destroy platelets which is why they tend to tranfuse you daily then every other day. My nutrifils kicked in very quickly so something must be working? But I do not have the other results to see if anything else is, on the humour side of things, I may be tired but at least I have a first line of defense with little infections. Try to take one day at a time, I find this helps, good luck xxx
