Hi David, thanks for the update.

Can understand this waiting & watching phase.
I am also in this mode for the past 2 years.
I see the hematologist once every 3 months for my CBC.
Of course I count myself lucky compare to many others here.
My last visit was last week & my platelet count plunged to 50 (my 'normal' is 100). Doctor said I have an enlarged lymph node on the right side of my neck.
I also had low grade fever for 2 days. Hopefully my platelet count will rebound if its just a viral infection. I have to see the doctor again next week.

Wishing your counts will remain stable for many more years.
